INSPIRING DAILY DEVOTIONAL ® … Advance swiftly in life on the wheels of prayer
Text(s) for today: Read Eph. 6 :10-18
“…praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit…” Eph. 6:18 KJV.
Although our key verse says “praying always,” yet some do not pray ALWAYS. Many Christians give several reasons for not being able to spend time in prayer daily. But beloved, no reason is good enough for not praying ALWAYS!
The fact that the project you are embarking on is one that will be a blessing to many or one that God told you to embark on and complete does not mean it is shielded from incurring the wrath of this “spiritual wickedness” as seen in the text for today.
In fact, Bible teaches us that these are the kind of projects these forces of evil are most interested in. The story of Job throws more light on this.
Perhaps, you have been working on getting married or getting a good class . Well all these things are beautiful but will only be a mirage except we pray! Perhaps you have been working on starting your own business or a book that you will like to publish or perhaps you’ve been looking for a good job.
Prayer, like we learnt at a recent LSM class, opens the door to God to fight on our behalf. Don’t be deceived into thinking that without prayer you can achieve all your good goals just because you are a child of God. Indeed, many of God’s wonderful promises to us like divine health, prosperity and so on are activated/enforced or realized through continued prayers.
Become prayerful today, if you’ve not been. Have a daily effective prayer time. By so doing, you speed up the pace of your success. Jesus (God’s son) had this kind of prayer time (Lk. 6:12; Matt. 14:23), the apostles had same (Acts 10: 9). The Bible exhorts us (his sons) to have same (1 Thes. 5:17; Col. 4:2). Make up your mind to do this. Start from today!
Prayer & Confessions (pray out loudly)
LORD I thank you for the privilege of prayer. In the name of Jesus I spend quality time in prayer with you, knowing that the more I pray, the faster I advance in life. I’m indeed strengthened today. Amen.
