Pray More – Pastor Chris
Saturday, September 30, 2017
Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer (Romans 12:12 AMPC).
The Spirit of God is showing us something we need to live a victorious life in Christ consistently in the scripture above. He noted that though there’s tribulation all around us, we should be constant, that is, consistent, in prayer.
Some think that prayer is all about telling God your problems, hoping He’ll do something about them. That’s a wrong perception on the subject of prayer. The purpose for prayer is primarily fellowship or communion with the Father. That communion helps to build love and make it stronger.
Hence, for you to grow and strengthen your love for Him, you have to learn to pray more. In prayer, you hear what the Spirit has to say and receive direction and instructions from Him that’ll put you over every day.
Jesus took prayer seriously while He was on earth, because He understood the importance of fellowship with the Father. The Bible says “…in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed” (Mark 1:35). The moment you relate to prayer with this understanding your life will become richer and you’ll be more productive in the things you do.
You need that continual fellowship and flow with the Spirit to function effectively. Learn to commune more frequently with the Lord, and watch your life grow tremendously.
Dear Father, thank you for the divine transformation and transfiguration that I experience through prayer; your glory fills my life; your love thrills my soul; how I love to worship in your presence! Thank you for the blessings and privilege to fellowship with you through prayer, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
