We are living in the last days. We cannot know what’s going on without a prayer life. I heard someone say that a prayerless preacher, teacher, person is a dangerous person.
See, without prayer, we cannot see what’s going on in the Spirit. We need to be alert and vigilant. There is an attack that’s been sent against the people of God concerning our prayer lives. It’s manifesting in many ways, and one of those ways is laziness. We just don’t feel like praying and studying the Word. Another one is being busy. We all of a sudden don’t have time to pray because we’re too busy doing other things, even if those other things are ministry related. There’s also a passiveness or a nonchalant attitude involving prayer, where we don’t think it’s that serious to pray and seek God anymore. We’ve become casual in our walk with God until other things are lifted higher on our priority list, and God becomes simply an option.
I just want to sound an alarm. It’s time to pray again. We cannot afford not to pray. Whatever you have to do to seek God, do it. If it’s turning the phones and TVs off, getting off of social media for a while, pulling away from the busyness of life, whatever it takes, get back to your Father again. The Lord desires to speak to you about what’s to come. He desires to share with you who you are, and how to access your God-given purpose and assignment.
Attend your church prayer gatherings. Set a daily personal prayer time with the Lord. Make prayer and studying the Word a priority. It’s not only important, our lives depend on it.
