NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO PRAY!
Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Jesus Christ concerning you. 1st Thessalonians 5:16-20 KJV
Somebody has to deliver the news, so don’t kill the messenger, I just want you to know, Now is A Good Time To Pray; it’s as good as any. God is a Big God so He can multitask; no waiting in line. And when you do pray, don’t waste your time praying just to get by. God don’t want us to be fearful, weak, and cowardly. Go ahead tell Him what you want, you tell everybody else.
Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace in times of need. Hebrews 4:16 NKJV
God want us to have the desires of our hearts, but when we pray, we mainly pray to keep things afloat. Quit praying just to have to pray the same prayer tomorrow, take a load off and Pray for a solution. Maybe Now is a good time to pray! It’s never too late or early to get started.
There are some of us who think when we pray, we can negotiate with God. If you do this I will do that. May I suggest we be careful when making deals and promises, including the ones you believe. I can make it happen. Been there done that! Uttering, I swear to God, can clearly put some of us on the spot, or at risk.
I am not you, but if I were I would study Matthew 5:36 (KJV) before I make the, I swear I can do it announcement again. Neither shall thou swear by thy head because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
I just want to git-er-done. But at times I have made promises without thinking, then I get scared and have to ask God to make it happen. I wouldn’t be worried about it if I had a Come to Jesus moment and prayed first. Praying without ceasing is a good habit to have.
Some pray with an attitude, they don’t believe, but they want something bad enough that anything goes. Some really can put their whole heart into that prayer, just in case.
What about Faith and Belief in Thy Will Be Done? I am telling you now, don’t blame God when He doesn’t answer right away; I’d take my time too. He’ll get to you when you get to Him. The good news is; Nobody gets turned down. If we can get over ourselves and get to the Fact of the Matter; You can do nothing without me. John 15:5 (KJV) Maybe then when we pray all we have to say is, Thank you, Jesus!
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou live in the land, and verily thou shall be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of thine heart. Psalm 37:4
God’s Promises are available to us through prayer and the belief that Jesus Christ Is Lord. He is the Son of The Living God, and He tells us how to become joint heirs. What more do you want?
My son, give me thine heart and let thine eyes observe my ways. Proverbs 23:26 KJV
We just weren’t handed a big list of to do’s, and do not. Our Father promised to guide us; Trust, in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not to thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:5-7 KJV
Go gladly, and boldly To The Lord In Prayer to obtain His promises, they are designed to give us peace in our hearts and minds through Jesus Christ.
Be careful with nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ. Philippians 4: 6-7 KJV
Because God is merciful He also promised; Whereby is given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of a divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2nd Peter 1:4
Constantly praying will get God’s attention, speak up and get to the point. O my Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me: Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. Amen! Matthew 26:30 KJV
Then Let It Go, the whole point of casting your cares upon The Lord. No one said it would be easy, but it is Something To Think About!
Thank you, Lord for giving us the Privilege of Prayer, and it is in Jesus name that we pray. God is Good! Amen
Thank you for your support.
