PRAY MORE !
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:18)
The more time you spend in fellowship with the Lord through
prayer, the more His character and personality are revealed in and through you. This is one of the most exciting benefits of prayer. Through prayer
your spiritual antenna is raised to pick God’s thoughts and think like Him. Some people only pray when they’re compelled to do so by
certain challenges they face in life, and that’s not right. As Christians we’re called into fellowship with our heavenly Father.
You get to know the Lord and love Him
more as you fellowship with Him through prayer and study of the Word. Praying, and praying the right way is an important activity in the life of every
Christian. It makes your life beautiful, vibrant and exuberant with praise at all times. Take your personal times of prayer, devotions and meditation
very seriously. Create the opportunities in the course of your day to fellowship with the Lord through prayer.
When you pray often, especially in the spirit,
you’ll live with a pure heart towards all men; you won’t criticize others as you’ll see only the good in them. Learn to intercede
for others more than ever before. 1 Timothy 2:1 says, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications,
prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men….” Take this admonition of the Spirit seriously. Consciously
practice this today! Take some time and pray for those around you, and for those in distant lands; it’s your priestly responsibility to do this.
As you spend more time in prayer, your life will
flourish from glory to glory because prayer is more than just an opportunity to get God to do something for you! It’s a time to commune with the
bask in rich spiritual consciousness; so give more time and attention to prayer.
Blessed Father, I pray that your Word will grow mightily and prevail in the lives of your Children around the world,
and that you grant them insights and revelations as they study your Word, granting them that inspired word they need that’ll improve their
lives, turn their situations around and establish them in your glory today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
James 5:16 AMP
