I hope this message meets you well.
I am back with another post as is my usual way of doing. Today, I want to talk about prayer. It is important to pay attention to how the great people in the Bible prayed. Daniel prayed 3 times a day.
Daniel 6:10 says:
10 But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with its windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to his God.
Jesus prayed frequently and he often retreated to a mountain top or to the wilderness to pray by himself. He also prayed early in the morning, and sometimes prayed all night.
Mark 1:35 says
35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
Luke 5:16 says
16 But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
Luke 6:12 says
12 One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
These are just two examples of the great people of God who are mentioned in the Bible with awesome prayer lives. Dear Brethren, prayer is not a goal, it is a habit. We need to form a habit of prayer. A mistake some Christians make is to try to jump from no prayer to a 13-hour prayer life format. Well, that can happen by God’s grace. However, many people benefit from starting small, e.g. 5 mins prayer sessions sprinkled throughout the day, and then over time that builds into longer prayers and long-stretched prayer sessions in one sitting. I pray that God will set fire to your prayer altars and make you hot for him again in the name of Jesus, amen.
