Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints (Ephesians 6:18).
The more time you spend in fellowship with the Lord through prayer, the more His character and personality are revealed in and through you. This is one of the most exciting benefits of prayer. Through prayer, your spiritual antenna is raised to pick God’s thoughts and think like Him. Some people only pray when they are compelled to do so by certain challenges they face in life, and that’s not right. As Christians we are called into fellowship with our heavenly Father.
You get to know the Lord and love Him more as you fellowship with Him through prayer and study of the word. Praying, and praying the right way, is an important activity in the life of every Christian. It makes your life beautiful, vibrant, and exuberant with praise at all times. Take your personal times of prayer, devotions, and meditation very seriously. Create the opportunities in the course of your day to fellowship with the Lord through prayer.
When you pray often, especially in the spirit, you’ll live with a pure heart towards all men; you won’t criticize others as you’ll see only the good in them. Learn to intercede for others more than ever before. 1 Timothy 2:1 says, ‘’I exhort therefore that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.’’ Take this admonition of the spirit seriously. Consciously practice this today! Take some time to pray for those around you, and for those in distance lands; it’s your priestly responsibility to do this.
As you spend more time in prayer, your life will flourish from glory to glory because prayer is more than just an opportunity to get God to do something for you! It’s a time to commune with the Lord and bask in rich spiritual consciousness; so give more time and attention to prayer.
Blessed Father, I pray that your Word will grow mightily and prevail in the lives of your children around the world, and that as they study your Word, you’ll grant them that inspired word they need to improve their lives, turn their situation around, and establish them in your glory today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
