Prayer, Pray and Praying


When it comes to praying Jesus spoke many things concerning it.  We see men like Abraham who prayed for a son. Isaac prayed for Rebekah for she had no kids. Elisha prayed for rain, Paul prayed for boldness. Peter prayed for Dorcas.

answered prayerThese are just example of people who prayed. Why did they pray? What made them so constant when it came to prayer? We have the same opportunity as these men and women in the bible who prayed. What cause men and women today to not be constant in prayer?

I believe the answer is that we don’t really see the need to pray as we should. We make excuses as to why we don’t have to pray. The society in which we live in draws our attention away from Jesus. We get gulf in everything else around us that we begin to think and act like the world does. The people in the bible who prayed to God had one agenda on their minds when it came to the Lord. The Lord was all that they had, they trusted God for food when they was in the desert, they trusted Jesus to heal their bodies without reservations.

What is distracting you from praying? What is consuming your time? What excuses are you making? Funny how we don’t have time to pray daily but the moment we are in trouble we are ready to pray!!

We all need to thank God that God does not treat us the way we treat Him! Prayer is your fuel, prayer is your way of communicating with the Lord. So when you don’t pray you are telling Jesus that you don’t need Him today. (how sad it  reminds me of the scripture in Psalm 14:1 which say’s “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.)

  1. I often think about this and I agree with what you said- that they had one agenda on their minds when it came to the Lord. Today we have too many things on our mind that places God on the backseat. Our priorities are messed up
