, Prayer:  The Best Preparation For Your Day

There’s an old gospel song entitled All Prayed Up.
That’s a great motto for a Christian.

One day when the disciples couldn’t cast out a demon, they asked Jesus why.
He told them that type could only be dealt with by prayer and fasting.

In other words, they weren’t ALL PRAYED UP.

We don’t know what we might encounter on any given day, but I know we’d be better prepared spiritually to handle it, and to help others, if we’ve spent some time in prayer.

The prophet Amos felt God wouldn’t do anything without telling His servant first. (Amos 3:7)
Are we listening though, that’s the question?
Prayer is pouring out our hearts and lifting up our needs, but it’s also listening.
Getting still and listening for the heart of God as He shares it with us.
It doesn’t take hours, but it does take commitment and a true desire to hear from God.

God wants to work in and through you every day. Prayer is His opportunity to prepare you for the unknown God moments coming your way.
Prayerlessness is carelessness. It closes the door to opportunities and reduces our effectiveness for Him.

Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
Ephesians 6:18

How about you? Are you ALL PRAYED UP?

  2. So True Kelly. Isn’t prayer the key to our relationship with God? I love to visit with God,The Holy Spirit and Jesus. Makes me feel special.

    amen. Addressed the same topic this morning πŸ™‚

  5. Thank you for posting this. I often think to myself that I don’t pray enough, and this post simply reflected that. This is where our strength is found

    Oh Kelly…..
    Thank you sharing this post…..! It really spoke to me today! I really appreciate it so much. I haven’t been praying as much as I should……I am encouraged! πŸ™‚ Thank you again.

  7. We are special to God! And yes, prayer is a key part of a close relationship with Him. That’s why our enemy would like to keep us distracted and discouraged. When we don’t talk with God we cut ourselves off from His wisdom and guidance, from peace and blessing.
    Thanks for visiting and sharing πŸ˜‰

  8. Worth a thousand words! Corrie ten Boon’s comment adds the punch of truth πŸ˜‰

  9. Great, I’ll check it out πŸ˜‰

  10. Your very welcome Kelly. Ditto

  11. I think setting aside a time to be in the ‘prayer closet’ is important, but I like to use daily chores as a prompt for prayer. I pray for family when I unload the dishwasher, I pray for Africa while I make the bed, and I pray for the unsaved or the prodigals while I unload groceries. When I’m doing the no-brainer stuff my heart and mind can be ‘redeeming the time’!

  12. Thank you for your like of my post on Memorial Day. That is very kind of you. I have been telling other people about the ministry that you and your husband lead. The
    reblog that I did of your post, “You Might Have Only One Opportunity,” has received
    good likes and comments. Please keep up your good work. Blessings to you.

  13. That’s so kind of you and thanks for passing along the encouragement. I try not to ‘notice the numbers’, but it’s nice when something is well received.
