Verses for the day: James 4:2, 1 Tim. 2:8
Whether attending conferences, teaching classes or participating in church, prayer is often the subject of conversation. I hear this spoken everywhere, “We don’t pray enough!” Yet, there seems to be the fear that because of the pressure from work and the force of habit, little hope lies for a change.
I regularly talk with people who now understand the importance of prayer yet seem paralyzed to make any change. What a sobering confession and with it the warning brought. We pray too little.
Which has more importance, the call of God for our time and attention, or work? If the God of Heaven is waiting to meet us and give us the power we need to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth, it is shortsighted to put other things in the place of prayer?
If we want to experience God’s presence, there must be more definite and persevering prayer.
