2013-0616:Synchronizing yourself with God’s purpose through Prayer

Synchronizing Yourself With God’s Purpose Through Prayer

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints “(Ephesians 6:18).

Some people only pray when they’re compelled to do so by certain challenges they face in life, and that’s not right. As Christians we’re called into fellowship with our heavenly Father. So for us, prayer is more than just an opportunity to get God to do something for us; it’s a fellowship, a time to commune with God and synchronise yourself with His purpose for your life daily. This is the reason you must give more time and attention to prayer.

The more time you spend in fellowship with the Lord through prayer, the more His character and personality are revealed in, and through you; you’ll find yourself thinking His thoughts and functioning always in the centre of His will. The man who prays lives with a pure heart towards all men; he doesn’t talk, reason, act or see like an ordinary man. He doesn’t criticize others as he sees only the good in them. He may be quiet but spiritual efficiency is reflected in his lifestyle, and people are drawn to him.

A prayerful Christian intercedes for others. He thinks the best of others and he’s ever willing to pray for their spiritual development and other concerns. He’s selfless, full of compassion and manifests the glory of God always because he sees the needs of others and reaches out to meet them. On the other hand, a Christian who doesn’t give time and attention to prayer is just the opposite. Criticisms, complains, confusion together with lack of ideas are evident in his life.

Praying, and praying the right way is an important activity in the life of every Christian. It makes a Christian’s life beautiful, vibrant and very exciting because of its attendant results. I urge you today to take your personal times of prayer, devotions and meditation this month very seriously. You must give ample time and take advantage of the opportunities in the course of your day to fellowship with the Lord through prayer. Ensure that you participate fully in the global prayer sessions at 12noon and 10pm local times, and watch your life flourish from glory to glory this month and beyond! Praise the Lord!
