"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all saints." Ephesians 6:18
IN JESUS TODAY!
Prayer is to the Christian what water is to the runner, what training is to the fighter, what ink is to the writer, and so on, prayer is vital, absolutely necessary to the robust existence and survival of life. Jesus knew this also, and so he took this part of his life very serious and often departed from the crowds, and even the disciples, to go apart and pray to his Father, as it is written, "And when he had sent the multitude away, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray." Mathew 4:23 Our source of power is God the Father, and our time in prayer to him is what pumps his power into our life! Just as it is with our cars, motorcycles, and even our bodies, we need to refuel them otherwise they just stop going! Gasoline and/or electric for our vehicles, a good diet and powerful healthy food for our bodies, and our prayer time alone with God praying in the spirit for our soul and spiritual life, now a lot of people like to snack for prayer, in other words taking not such a long time for this, but we must know that we get out what we put in! If we only put in one dollar into our vehicles without taking the time to fill the tank, then we can only go so far, if we only sleep for one hour, or eat only a snack for our bodies, then we can only have the energy for a short amount of time, and if we only pray a few words for a few seconds to God, then we will get that out of this time. What we put in is what we get out! Take your prayer time with God serious and commit to spending quality time with him alone, apart from this fast paced, go, go, go life! Refuel your tank completely! Do you feel tired, discouraged, defeated, downcast, or weak all around? Go apart, away from it all, and cry out to Jesus and pray!
When you come down from praying unto God, our power source, you will look and feel completely different. There is power in prayer! God our Father will refuel us for this life's journey!
