Cultivate The Habit of Praying
‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’
– Philippians 4:6 (NIV)
We lose way too much time worrying about things we ultimately have no control over. We must learn to let go of our worries and anxiety, and rather to turn our requests over to God, and trust Him to take care of things.
This can only happen through prayer.
There truly is a direct correlation between trusting God and praying. Prayer is your way to communicate with the Father, your chance to bring before Him your gratitude, needs, and concerns.
Sometimes it feels like you don’t have enough time to pray because you are pretty busy and many things are demanding your attention.
But sincerely speaking, that feeling is not the truth, we always have time for whatever we consider as important to us. You and I always have time to pray.
Simply put, prayer is a habit that you must cultivate. It is the kingdom culture, a way of life. When you pray, you are handing-over your needs to your trustworthy God rather than relying on yourself to make things happen.
Furthermore, unceasing prayer is key to getting close to your heavenly Father.
Remember this quote, ‘Prayer is a discipline of the flesh not a gift of the Spirit’.
Whatever be the situation, high pressure or soothing relief, keep staying in the prayer mode. Prayer has no time constraints, God’s doors are opened 24/7.
Prayer is not location-dependent, God is everywhere you go.
Talk to Him today and every day. He loves to hear from you all the time.
Dear God, You are greater than anything I face. I refuse to fix my eyes on the obstacle and enemy but instead elevate my gaze to You.
I will speak Your words of life and truth, agreeing with You alone, believing You are who You said You are and will do what You said You will do. You are faithful. You will come through. That’s who You are. That’s what You do.
By Your grace, I will live by faith. By faith, I believe You will fulfill Your purpose for my life — that I will reach the destiny You planned for me all along — and I will give You all the glory in everything I do as we travel there together.
In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen.
