Thessalonians 5:13 ‘Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.’
In this most beautiful Scripture there is a coupling of rejoice, pray continually and give thanks. How has your prayer life started this new year? When asked to pray for someone, are your prayers one liners, “Please heal ……. and restore him/her to health.” Almost a tick box obligation approach, “Yes I have prayed for…..” This may appease one’s conscience, however, looking at how Jesus prayed one can take prayer life to a new level. Researching Scripture on Jesus’s frequency of prayer, words, location and times of day or night can be a revelation. Are you going to use one of God’s greatest gifts this year, the gift of prayer? Mathew 26:44 ‘So he (Jesus) left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing.’ May you be blessed in 2016.
