Each of us has a part to play in manifesting God’s Kingdom on the earth. Prayer is a call of duty, a practice and principle for every one belonging to Christ. After all, if He is our Lord, how can we honor His lordship if we don’t communicate with Him daily?
We will each be led to pray in different ways and with different intensities, but for all of us, prayer is as foundational a Christian discipline as reading the Scriptures or obeying the law of love. It is the place of apprenticeship for learning the voice of God so that He can teach and empower us to live as His representatives on the earth.
Prayer is the key to our success and to winning battles in every arena of life. This is why we must become people who live in the way of prayer. (The Art of War, p. 39.)
May God grant you a heart to pursue Him in prayer daily—an ear that hears His voice and a will to obey it. May you prevail through prayer in every area on every front at every juncture in every moment of every day. May you live and prevail this week in the way of prayer.
Isaiah 50:4 MSG: The Master, God, has given me a well-taught tongue, So I know how to encourage tired people. He wakes me up in the morning, Wakes me up, opens my ears to listen as one ready to take orders. The Master, God, opened my ears, and I didn’t go back to sleep, didn’t pull the covers back over my head.
