Paul told us we should “pray without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17). So, more than anything else, simply be consistent, be consistent, BE CONSISTENT in your prayer times! The effectiveness of prayer is largely due to the consistency with which it is pursued, as well as how consistently you line up the words you speak with the prayers you’ve prayed.
You will obtain a tenacity of spirit when you stay vigilantly and relentlessly focused on seeking God in prayer.
The term vigilant connotes a stare, or gaze, that defies anything to move out of timing or order. Look intently to the matters God has exposed in the realm of the Spirit. Once your focus is locked, the intensity of prayer should escalate until it dismantles the illegal movements of the satanic kingdom. It is a privilege to move with this kind of intensity in undistracted and undeterred prayer. (The Art of War, p. 110.)
I challenge you this week to focus on consistency in prayer—to stay vigilant as you defy anything that moves out of God’s timing or order! Don’t ever let up! Pray with force and perseverance . . . be as consistent as you are bold! Determine to finish strong!
1 Peter 5:8 AMP: Be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.
