A human being lives, but he is given life.
Time and time again, we see Christ in prayer during His ministry on this earth. After teaching great multitudes and healing them of their infirmities, we are told. “So Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed” (Luke 5:16).Luke reports this before calling the 12 disciples. He knew it was only through such times of prayer that He would be one with the Father in prayer. And be empowered to do the work He came to do.
When confronted with Satan and his works, Jesus simply spoke the word in the power and authority of the Father, and Satan’s power was broken. Jesus set the example for us to follow, the disciples knew this and we see they too were men of prayer and the early Christian church also were men and women of prayer.
Today’s study is a little short by that is because I challenge each and every one that reads this post, to stop what you are doing and pray. Do not ask Christ to give you a bigger TV, ask Him to make your heart like His, or maybe just tell Him thank
you for allowing you to be in His service. “We need to stop praying to get and start praying to be”.
