"And he (Jesus) spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; (Luke 18:1).
In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 we read; "Pray without ceasing".
Men ought always to pray because prayer is where our most intimate needs are met as we seek the face of our Lord God, and it is where we begin our eternal journey into enjoying His continual loving presence.
As a young Christian I had no where near the understanding of the depth of prayer for which I now have some thirty two years later. It has been a wonderful journey, which continues to this very day.
Do you pray? If you do pray do you really understand what prayer is all about?
As a believer, in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior I have discovered that throughout Christendom most do not pray as the Lord has exhorted to "always pray and faint not".
The biggest reason I have discovered is people seem to think they don't have enough time, or prayer is boring.
I admit when I was younger prayer seemed to be such a hard chore. It was hard to spend five, or even ten minutes alone with God.
Perhaps you have been there? You have well intentioned purpose to spend time with the one who died for you, but oh so many distractions. The mind seems to think of everything, and every problem, and every negative circumstance that you just can't quiet your mind to focus. Frustrating. No peace.
However, in Isaiah 26:3 there is an answer to this problem which everyone faces when trying to focus on the Lord during prayer; "Thou wilt keep
him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee".
So you see it is by Faith in the Word of the Lord written in Isaiah that we can expect perfect peace when seeking the Lord though prayer, because the Holy Spirit will illuminate this truth for us because we trust in Him.
Oh, dear friend the most precious time of my day is when I rise early to seek my master. In doing so He is already there waiting for me, because He loves me.
Please don't miss out on the greatest opportunity you will have to meet with God though intimate prayer. Make it your passion.
Jesus; He was crucified and buried, and on the third day rose from the dead. This one called Jesus the Christ the Son of the Living God loves you so much, and sacrificed His life so you could be presented as a gift to God. Yes, you are that important to the Lord.
Do you know Him? Do you want to know him, and have fellowship with Him? A relationship with God is only possible though faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.
The Word of God explains in Romans 10:13; "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved".
Will you call upon Jesus now? Pray this prayer of agreement with me and you will be saved, as your sins will be washed away by Jesus Christ's blood, and you will begin your eternal journey with God.
Dear Jesus, please forgive me of my sins. I believe Romans 10:13; "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved", and I call upon Jesus Christ to be my Lord, and Savior, as He has paid the price for my Salvation due to His death on the cross. I acknowledge that Jesus Christ rose again from the dead and now lives in my spirit. Forevermore I will live for Him, and obey Him whatever His will for me is! In Jesus Name Amen!
Praise God my brother or sister and welcome to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ!
