I am usually a person of prayer. I find it easiest to pray over my children, for travel mercies, or for others with needs. But, I have found myself slacking in praying for things, specifically desires, in my own life. I have felt challenged in my prayer life recently.
To pray without ceasing.
I think I tend to pray for something I desire. Then, I stop there. I leave it. Because, I just assume that whatever God’s will is will be anyway. So, why continue to pray for it?
But, where is the glory in this? How can God get glory in answering our prayers when we stop praying? When we just presume that whatever be will be?
I’m not taking away from God’s will for our lives. But, what if, at times, we delay His will, because we become slack in our prayer life?
I’m just thinkin’. Out loud. On my blog.
In scripture, we see people of faith who prayed with persistence. How many times did Elijah send his servant to the top of the mountain? He prayed with perseverance.
And, God honored His request.
Maybe, like Elijah, you are facing your Mount Carmel.
And, pray again.
I think I’ll do the same.
Never stop praying. 1 Thessalonians 5:17
