While being interviewed before a boxing match, Mike Tyson was asked for his thoughts on his opponent’s style. Tyson observed. “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”

Likewise, everyone has a plan for how they’ll be victorious until adversity comes. Once disorientation hits, all resolved, strength, and composure vanish like a boxer’s two front teeth.

“God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil.”

~ Mother Teresa

“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”
~ 1 Corinthians 6:19

My grandkids always bust me when I forget to pray before a meal, and I love that.

We don’t always pray as much as we ought to. In fact, we could pray a lot more. When a crisis hits, what is our first inclination? It’s to say, “God, take this problem away.”

Sometimes He does. But there are other times when He doesn’t. The reality is that problem, that difficulty, keeps us in touch with God. It keeps us dependent on God. And it keeps us praying without ceasing.

The apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Rome, “For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers” (Romans 1:9 NKJV).

Then 1 Thessalonians 5:17–18 tells us, “Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (NKJV).

Maybe you’re saying, “Pray without ceasing? How that is even possible? I have a life. I have to go to work. I have to do a lot of things. I can’t just pray all day.”

For the rest of the post…

“The local church serves as a greenhouse where our prayers thrive. The local church creates the ideal environment for us to maximize the benefits of prayer while mitigating the dangers of selfishness and pride…”

~ John OnwuchewaPrayer62.

O what peace we often forfeit,

O what needless pain we pain,

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer!

~ Joseph Scriven

“Fight your battles through prayer,
And win your battles through faith.”

~ Luffina Lourduraj

Heavenly Father,

Hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is heaven.

May your kingdom and will be done on Sunday, October 20, 2019.

Your church in America is in deparate need for spiritual revival.  

Please, Father, send it!

In Jesus Name!

Amen!

“We certainly shouldn’t try to impress others with our prayers, but we always involve them in our prayers. Why? Because we’re family. God is not just my Father, ‘Our Father.’ These two words remind us that we’re both children of God and siblings to each other. Prayer was never meant to be a merely personal exercise with personal benefits, but a discipline that reminds us how we’re personally responsible for others”

~ John OnwuchewaPrayer, 41.

Let us return to the basic things of the Word of God and prayer and soul winning and revival. Let us pray, “O God, send a revival. Let it begin in me.”

“Tell me what a man’s prayers are, and I will soon tell you the state of his soul.”

~ J. C. Ryle
