Prayer Is Essential!

Hey Family, as we step into day 3 in 2021, I just wanted to remind you that prayer is one of the most important activities in our lives because we’re actually talking to the sovereign God of the universe. He understands how we feel, knows what we think, and has the power to intervene in every area of life. Our quiet time with God empowers us to face the challenges of each day even before our day begins. When we make prayer a priority, we reap a whole host of benefits like comfort, guidance, strength, wisdom, and confidence.

Let’s me set the record straight; prayer is not and was never an optional request, it’s a command! In 1 Thessalonians 5:17, we are commanded to “pray without ceasing.” God expects us to be people of prayer. Our lives are to be saturated with prayer, identified by prayer. The very words “without ceasing” imply the idea of never ending. That means we ought to be praying all the time and about everything.

Case and point, in order for us to experience true and long lasting success, we need to pray. In fact, prayer ought to be our first response in every circumstance in this life. Our lives are not of quiet desperation, but of divine inspiration. God has placed each one of us in this world and commanded us to pray in order that we might bring his presence and blessing into our present reality.

In closing, don’t forget that prayer is one of the main attributes mentioned in the Bible about the church; Jesus dubbed it a house of prayer. We might even say that if the old adage is true, “Brick and mortar don’t make a church — people do,” then every Christian ought to be a “house of prayer.”
