Engage In Prayer
When the word “engage” came to me, I quickly checked my dictionary to understand what it really meant. It means to hold the attention of, to keep busy or occupied.
Luke 18:1 KJV: And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.
I know there are times when we feel like, “I haven’t spoken with God for days, how do I make up for this?”
Then, we begin to struggle with scheduling time to pray because all we see is our busy schedule.
Today I have “good news” for you. Prayer isn’t something to worry or feel burdened about, It is something we should enjoy doing, it should be a lifestyle.
That is why the scriptures says *Pray without Ceasing*(1 thess 5v17)…If God wanted it to be for a particular time in the day, the word *ceasing* wouldn’t have been used. Instead, *season* would have been used.
It is important we know that God really desires to hear our voice. He wants to hear you speak to Him. The same way we cannot do without calling that special person, why not make it a priority to call on God always.
How do I do this?—-“I just heard someone ask”.
That time you use to pick up your phone to respond to chats, or to send messages, why not talk to God before you do that?
Take out time like you do in replying your chats to also talk, listen and hear God’s voice.
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.
Philippians 4:6 KJV
Keyword: Prayer in its purest form is a love relationship with God– It is an enjoyable, not a religious activity.
Make a continuous effort to speak with Him every second, minute or hour in the day. Remember, “If you remain in Him and His words will remain in You, anything you ask, will be granted unto you.
Sometimes, we just need help to start a prayer life. Today i recommend that you make it a daily conversation, and you will discover that you cannot actually go a day without talking to God.
KEEP ASKING!!! KEEP KNOCKING!!! KEEP SEEKING!!! – Matthew 7:7
