Prayer in your life
Of the spiritual luggage that you will carry with you into the new year, prayer is one of the most important components. Some people maintain that prayer is easy. Others believe that it is difficult. If you are trying to develop a growing and meaningful prayer life, you will know that both these statements contain some truth.
With the best intentions in your heart, you set aside time for a peaceful time of prayer; but just as you are preparing yourself, something intrudes upon these precious moments: a telephone call, a knock at the door, a sudden reminder of something you should have done. (sound familiar …?) You can be sure that the devil will leave no stone un-turned to prevent you from praying!
It would be a good idea to take these things that distract you and enfold them with your prayers. Take the disturbances that the devil places in your way and change them into subjects for prayer.
Prayer is not a static entity, but a dynamic, pulsating force that needs to be used continually if it is to retain its power and fulfill its function of leading you into a more intimate relationship with God. If your prayer life is weak and ineffectual, you become like a car battery that hasn’t been used for a considerable time: it cannot fulfill the task for which it w created. Recharge your prayer batteries through disciplined prayer and feel how God starts working in your life once more.
Have a blessed day today.
