Today’s prayer

March 28, 2024

Today’s Prayer: SOME THINGS WE DO IN LIFE DON’T REALLY MATTER. PRAYER MATTERS! We invest far too much time in things that don’t matter and not enough time with something that really matters. We’ve gotta get up and go, go, go…Well, sometimes you have to stop and take care of what matters most and that is tending to your relationship with God in prayer. Early morning prayer is vital and of course should be a priority but don’t hesitate to pray at anytime as need arises. Prayer should be a first inclination, the first thing we think of in sudden crisis or when something perplexing occurs and we don’t know what to do. Jesus was summoned on numerous occasions to pray for the sick, to raise the dead to heal the ones tormented of mind. He didn’t wait till morning prayer. Of course He prayed early and often as a regular habit. We need to be sensitive to the occasions where life will squeeze prayer out of you in a moments time. Prayer brings direction as to what we ought to do. Prayer can guide you through difficult moments that spring upon you on any given day at any given moment. ‘Lord, what will you have me to do…?’ That’s pretty simple yet it can trigger a response from God that will help in time of need. If we prayed more, and more directly I suspect we would make fewer mistakes in life. I think this was the Apostle Paul’s disposition, as he thought of people and need, he would spontaneously pray at any time during the day. Prayer should readily come forth. [Romans 1:9] “For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers…”. Life is challenging, it is unpredictable, don’t be surprised if today you need to call on Him in the midst of an unexpected challenge. Be ready to do so. It happened to King Jehoshaphat; [2 Chronicles 20:1] “It happened after this that the people of Moab with the people of Ammon, and others with them besides the Ammonites, came to battle against Jehoshaphat.” Sudden and unexpected crisis, and he was ready. It was outside the boundaries of his normal time for prayer and worship. He sought God in the face of great need. [2 Chronicles 20:3] “And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.” His first inclination was prayer and fasting. That is precisely how you handle what comes at you when you don’t know what to do.
