Ephesians 6:18, 19 – “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
I just got through reading Fox News… how depressing! I can’t think of one positive thing I took away from any one of the articles that I read. Our days are filled with bad, stressful news. There is something that helps us to rise up beyond this world’s present circumstances and that is prayer.
I challenge you today to meditate on Paul’s words of exhortation here in Ephesians 6:18,19. Here are some thoughts I came away with after reading these verses.
Pray all the time. Pray at set times and pray at every given opportunity. Pray when it is convenient and pray when it is not. Pray when prayer is due. Pray short prayers. Pray for a season. But most importantly pray.
What is Paul saying? He is saying take every occasion, time, and opportunity, short or long to pray!!! Don’t think about it — pray about it. Don’t worry about it — pray about it. Don’t gossip about it — pray about it. Don’t whine about it — pray about it. Don’t fight about it — pray about it.
Whatever is on your mind today take a moment right now and give it to the Lord. Don’t carry that burden give it to the one that can do something about it.
Pray always with all prayer and supplication!!!
