PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

1 Thessalonians 5:17

Put pressure on the devil!

Prayer isn’t voluntary to the child of God; it’s a
compulsory spiritual activity. We discover many times from the scriptures how
the Lord Jesus Christ separated Himself from the people to pray. He also used
several parables to teach the people,
“……..that men ought always to pray, and not to faint”
(Luke 18:1).
Throughout the scriptures, much emphasis was placed on the place of prayer in
the life of a Christian.

Every time you spend time to pray, you’re actually putting
pressure on the devil. Too often, many wait until the pressure comes to them
before they pray. I discover that the reason some Christians go through
terrible ordeals in their lives is that they don’t set themselves to pray early
enough. You don’t have to wait until the devil meets you on your dinner table
before you deal with him. Counter his advances ever before he gets to your door
step.

The challenge with many people is they are too lazy to pray.
A man ran into a church crying for help hysterically. “Please pray for me” he
cried “My pregnant wife is in the intensive care unit.” He had nine months to
pray but he didn’t pray. Now he wants emergency prayers. This is why many go
around looking for “Success formula”. It’s like the student who had five months
to prepare for his exams but failed to prepare. Then, on the night before his
exams he began praying to God for help; he took to prayer late.

We’re living in an age where everybody wants everything
fast. There are fast-foods, fast-cars, jet planes, super-computers, and so on.
Now, we want to put God into the same fast-lane and so we inadvertently pray “Fast prayers” for instant results. All
we want to know is how to push some buttons and have God respond quickly.
That’s wrong! Get serious with your life today and make the right changes for
your spiritual development! Amen!

CONFESSION

I am not lazy to pray
nor would I give up on prayer. I refuse to be at satan’s mercy, instead as I
pray, I set up force field that puts pressure on him and his evil devices. And
through my prayer life, I maintain this advantage over him in Jesus Christ’
Name! Amen!
