God bless you,
This morning I want to remember you why it so important that we are constantly talking to God. (praying) When you pray doesn’t necessarily mean you have to ask for something. You can be grateful and thankful for what God is doing. Grateful for life because this was not promised to you it is by His grace..Grateful that He will never forsaken you, give your praise to God, Exalt Him, Glorify Him… Now a days we have a attitude that when we need something we know what prayer means. Prayer is not a option to get out of trouble. Sometimes prayer brings relief, you can see with clarity a way out all that stress has covered with darkness. You now have hope.
For Paul praying was not a option it was a vital question. Paul writes in
1 Thessalonians 5:17 that we must pray without ceasing..Also in the book of Romans chapter 12:12 he says:” Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” When your faithful to something you can also say you are committed to it.. Commit yourself in prayer. Talk to God about everything. There is nothing you can say to God that He already didn’t know about.
You must be driven by the Holy Ghost to connect with the Father, it is not a routine it is a act inspired and driven by the Holy Ghost.
Ephesians 6:18 says “ And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
If you look at Jesus, He was disciplined in prayer. His ministry begun with praying and fasting. Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’
The first church in acts 2:42 lived in a atmosphere of praying;They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
We must be constantly in prayer. Prayer builds us up. When you pray you are keeping the line of communication between you and God open. Remember that when you communicate with someone you have to give them the space to reply back. Give God the chance to answer back to you.
With loving regards,
