Prayer is important! Prayer is another weapon at our disposal in this spiritual battle that we are engaged in. Prayer is both our starting point and our last resort. Prayer is to be constant and nothing is too small or too large to pray about. Prayer is our access point to all God has for us.
We are to pray in the Spirit. Not in the flesh. Not according to our fleeting passions and sinful nature. Our prayers are to be led by the Spirit and birthed within us by the Spirit working in our heart. Our spirit is willing but our flesh is week. Overcome the flesh by pressing into prayer daily. Make it a priority. First things first. Cover your day in prayer.
We are to pray on all occasions. No matter what it is we are to bring it to God. Our decision making, our relationships, our work activities. Prayer is not just for Sundays. It is not just for church. It is not only for salvation. All occasions are to be brought to God in prayer. Big or small, they all matter to God.
Prayer is not just regarding our own needs. We are to be praying for all the Lord’s people. we are all part of the family of God and we are to be praying for our brothers and sisters around the world. It’s pretty awesome to think that someone in another country might be talking to God on your behalf right now and neither you nor they know that is the case. God knows though and cares. He hears our prayers and they really do make a difference.
If you haven’t taken time to pray today, why don’t you take a moment now and enter into the holy of hollies for some intimate time with the Father? No better time than the present to talk to our Lord.
