Pray Without Ceasing!

 Pray without ceasing. (1 Thess. 5:17) 

Prayer is a must! 

What would our life be like if we never took the time to pray to God for our needs, our personal growth (spiritual, personal, and professional)? What if decided to go out on a limb and stop praying for each and every one of you or vice versa? Without prayer in our lives or simply praying when it's most convenient for us to do so is counter-productive.

Yes, I am implying that prayer can happen 24/7/365. This can be accomplish because as believers we have been blessed and anointed through the Holy Spirit to be in continuous prayer. We can experience God and His power through our prayer life regardless of whatever it is that we are doing at the moment. We can be doing everything from sleeping to being in the middle of our work and be in continuous prayer because of the Holy Spirit's intervention in our lives.

In light of what I had just shared with you, prayer is indeed a lifeline in our lives. Our prayer life is a direct reflection of who we are in Christ and what or whom we choose to give more priority to. If we happen to choose not to give any part of our day to God in prayer, we will inevitably set ourselves and the day ahead up for failure. 

We serve a personal God. God is indeed very interested in every single area of our lives. As an intercessor, I have heard countless testimonies of how people have experienced financial breakthroughs, physical healing, and spiritual maturity all because of someone that they know (or in some instances, someone they never knew) was praying for him or her. Since it the Holy Spirit that is always interceding on our behalf, we can always approach God confidently that He will one day answer our earnest and heartfelt prayers. Just be mindful that your prayers are not selfish or vengeful or in any other way that places too much emphasis on you instead of God and His character. 

Thanks for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!...:-)

P.S.: Please don't forget to apply the prayer above this post to a friend, family, or loved one!
