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 saints.
Be joyful always
Give thanks in all circumstances
For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Pray. Pray. Pray. But what is prayer? It is hard to believe that many a follower of Yeshua still struggles with the concept of prayer and even how to go about it.
Setting aside a time to pray is keeping a regular appointment with God. It is ‘face time’ with the only One in the whole universe who knows the real me and you. It is a time to rejoice and be thankful. It is a time to seek His will in our daily walk, in our circumstances, in requests for ourselves and others. It is a time to lay all our cares and burdens at His feet. It is a time to fall into His arms with our sorrows and tears. It is a time to receive strength and encouragement. God is all ears and is always available for an appointment, day or night. All you have to do is show up.
The Lord is coming!
