Would you agree that prayer is often the most talked about and least practiced aspect of the Christian life?
Perhaps you’re like me and you have experienced the power of passionate and audacious prayer, and you have the desire to make this a regular habit in your personal walk with the Lord, but you tend to lack the commitment to do so. In a lot of ways, this reminds me of trying to fit into those jeans that, before the holidays, weren’t so tight. But somehow, I never seem to be able to keep the motivation to wake up early and hit the treadmill in order to lose some of the “hindrances” of my previously comfortable jeans.
To be honest, I don’t need to be told to pray more passionately to the Lord, just like I don't need a scale to remind myself that I need to exercise. What I need is MOTIVATION.
In this week's text, God provides us with some of the greatest motivation we could ever dream of in order to awaken our hearts again to the powerful effects of prayer.
