“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2
“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.” Soren Kierkegaard
Are you devoted to prayer? Almost all of us recognize that our prayer life could use some improvement. One major problem with our dwindling prayer life is that we are inundated with pressures and activities in this fast-paced world. As a result, prayer often becomes a quick sentence or two before rushing out the door, or it’s combined with some other activity in an effort to multitask.
But the lack of time isn’t an excuse for not sitting down quietly with the Lord to read His Word and talk with Him. The real problem is our priorities. We’re consumed with the urgent and have lost sight of what’s truly important. By neglecting prayer, we forfeit greater love for Christ, as well as others.
I want to encouraged You to pray often and regularly. Take steps to see that it is part of your regular life, the same way eating and sleeping are. Be a person who is devoted to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, so distractions and past or future hurts and problems do not consume you.
Dedicate yourselves to prayer and be alert; think, and be aware of your situation and opportunities so you can be your best for His Highest in all situations. Above all, be appreciative to God and others.
As we enter a new week, allow a sense of gratitude for Christ, allow His Love to encompass you so can face whatever challenges comes your way. And lastly, activate your prayer life today.
Father, thank you for answering all our prayers and for the miracles you perform every day. In Jesus’ name I pray…AMEN!
