This is one of those ‘ouch’ type posts. Prayer. Is it the forgotten part of being a Christian? Is that thing that someone else does? Hope not. Everyone needs to pray. Everyone should want to be prayed for too. Never miss the opportunity.
Just finished 3 days of prayer and fasting at Xcel Church. It wasn’t easy getting up at 6.15am but I showed myself that I can do it. Did you? Did you make it to any one of the 6 prayer meetings. Did you fast…something, anything? Did you push yourself, believe for breakthrough? Did you make sure that the ministry you are involved in got prayed for?
Prayer is our responsibility. The Bible says that we do not have, because we do not ask. Jesus took himself to a place where he could spend time with his Father. If it was essential for Jesus then surely we must take it more seriously.
I do not speak a someone who is the master of this. Default mode is possibly set wrong. I fill my time with so much insignificant stuff that I often lose sight of the significance of prayer. The power that a prayer of faith can bring. REMEMBER: the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
So, be honest…how did you do? What could you do differently?
