In English, an interface is a device or system that unrelated entities use to interact.

When I read that - - immediately I thought, “That sounds like something that is a go between to connect two like or unlike things.”

The illustration is given whereby the volume control on a TV is the interface between a person and the workings of the set. Interface is a term used in discussing computers and their functions both hardware, software and the user. It is something like a bridge that allows traffic to flow in both directions.

I had never thought about prayer being an interface between GOD and man but in essence I believe it is.

One of the prime uses of the interface is the linking of two incompatible objects to produce a useful end product. When you consider that man and GOD are different entities the interface can bridge that gap. Some would claim that there are similarities due to the fact that GOD is a Spirit and man has a spirit yet they are not the same.

This problem was solved when Jesus took upon himself the likeness of man in the incarnation. That is why, when Christ came into the world, he said to God, Hebrews 10:5 "You did not want animal sacrifices or sin offerings. But you have given me a body to offer.”

In the offering up of himself for the sin of the world he became the link (the interface) for communication between God and man.

You might say that the name of Jesus is the password we have been given for full access to the Father. Whether it is prayer, worship or service, all interaction is done via the interface (Jesus). It is a fail safe system that always works so rejoice and be glad.

Why don't you try it and see if it works for you. Perhaps someone needs you to pray them through, even now!
