MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 12 February 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Too Busy To Pray (I)
TOPIC: Too Busy To Pray (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 12 February 2019)
Bible In One Year: Leviticus 13; Matthew 26:26-50
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Daniel 6:3-11
MEMORY VERSE: “Pray without ceasing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:17
One of the evil of our time is that Christians become too busy with all kinds of activities and abandon prayer; their lifeline and life wire. Some become so busy, engrossed and passionate about their career and business that they don’t even observe their Quite Time before they get out of the house in the morning and are too tired to even pray by the time they return very late in the night. Their lives have become such an unpleasant routine. Some ministers too are guilty of this. They are so busy with church programmes and activities day in day out, that they hardly devote sufficient time to personally wait on the Lord and renew their own strength.
Failure to do Quite Time (study the Bible and pray consistently everyday), is one of the causes of powerlessness in our age. Modern day Christians are too busy to seek God, too busy to pray and too busy too study their Bibles. Many are busy serving tables instead of focusing on the ministry of the word and prayer. How are they serving tables? The same people who have no time for the word of God and prayer devote their time and God-given resources to throwing parties and attending parties almost every weekend. They give quality time to their career and business but no time to develop their spiritual lives. That is why many are very vulnerable and are easy preys for the devil. They are empty and defenseless spiritually. They receive just one blow from the devil and they are on the floor.
If you are too lazy to study the word and pray and build quality relationship with God, your life will be dry and meaningless. There is no true success outside God. When such spiritually lazy folks run into problems, they go to pastors who pray for them, then tell them to fast and give them prayers to pray. They often tell such pastors, “Sir, I have never fasted before. In fact the doctor said I have ulcer. I am on a medication. Can you help me to do the fast and the prayer? Just tell me any amount to pay. I will pay it.” Those are the lazy Christians. They are only deceiving themselves.
PRAYER DOES NOT CHANGE GOD BUT IT CHANGES THE ONE WHO PRAYS.
Your prayers shall bring you dumbfounding testimonies.
- O God, help me to understand the privilege and benefits of prayers, in the name of Jesus.
- Anything assigned to keep me from praying, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, deliver my spiritual life from dryness, in the name of Jesus.
- I reject satanic distractions, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, plug me into the socket of Your power, in the name of Jesus.
- I will not abandon God’s word and prayer to serve tables, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, deliver me from spiritual laziness and ignorance, in the name of Jesus.
