And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. (Mark 1:35)
As your life will cease when your breath ceases, so does the life of your purpose cease when prayer ceases. Your purpose will not fail when it is backed by prayer. Remember that time spent in prayer is not time wasted but time invested.
Have a daily prayer plan that includes the following:
# Your purpose - commit it to God daily and ask that His perfect will abound in your will and your plan - the Bible says in Proverbs 3:6.... 'In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths'
#Ask God for grace to persevere and for daily passion for your purpose.
Ask God for forgiveness for any negative proclamations you have made, and enforce this daily with His word.
#Renounce, cancel and erase every negative word you have spoken upon your life.
# Replace the negative confessions with positive confessions.
Do you have a prayer life? Is your prayer life what God wants it to be? The Bible says in 1 Peter 2:21, "For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow his steps.''
The prayer life of Jesus should be our guide:
- He prayed before day break according to our opening scripture... Mark 1:35. In the east, the sun rises at about 4:00am. And so, Jesus woke up before this time to pray.
- He was very busy, yet He found time to pray. - (Luke 5:15-16), Are you so busy that you think you don't have to pray? Do you sometimes get too busy that you think that time spent in prayer is a bother? Prayer is the life of your purpose.
- Jesus also prayed when all was going well with him. He did not consider prayer as important only when things went bad and needed results. It is even more necessary to pray when all is going well. (1Thessalonians 5:17)
- Jesus sometimes prayed all night. (Luke 6:12)
Heavenly Father, I thank you for today's word. I declare that I will give myself to prayer daily for that is my life. Amen.
