Topic: Understanding Prayer [Seeds of Destiny 20 March 2019 Devotional]
We rob ourselves of communion and relationship with God if we do not pray.
SCRIPTURE: But we will continue to devote ourselves steadfastly to prayer and the ministry of the Word. Acts 6:4 (AMP)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: We rob ourselves of communion and relationship with God if we do not pray.
In our previous studies, we saw that prayer is necessary for dedication to God. We also saw the products and profits of prayer. Now, it is very important to know what prayer is all about. This is because nothing can be outstanding without understanding. It is one thing to know the importance or products of prayer, it is another thing to know what prayer is all about. The combination of the importance and understanding of prayer is key to fuelling our dedication to God.
Now, what is prayer?
Prayer is the servicing of our relationship with our heavenly Father through the communication of our value and worship for Him as well as our thoughts and desires to Him.
At the place of prayer, we communicate with our Heavenly Father; we express our value for Him to Him, we communicate our worship for Him to Him, and we also communicate our thoughts and desires to Him.
At the place of prayer, we let God know how much we value Him; and we also let Him know what is on our mind and what we desire Him to do for us. This is what prayer is all about.
This means, we deprive ourselves of allowing God to know our thoughts and desires if we do not pray; we rob ourselves of communion and relationship with God if we do not pray.
Beloved, it is important to know that relationships are serviced by communication and when we don’t pray, we deprive ourselves of our relationship with God. Therefore, make up your mind to pray always.
Remember this: We rob ourselves of communion and relationship with God if we do not pray.
- Receive help from the Spirit to be prayerful.
- Make up your mind to commune with God frequently.
