00053 - Persistent in prayer
Updated: Mar 10
Have you noticed that when you pray, coincidences happen and when you don’t pray, coincidences don’t happen? It should be no surprise that when we set aside time to press into God, and P.U.S.H. (Pray Until Something Happens), inevitably things begin to align with the direction of our prayer.
Ephesians 6:18 says ‘And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people’. Just consider what it is you want to pray for and how you’ll make time to push into God to see that happen.
If there is a drug problem in your community, Pray. There might be antisocial behaviour, Pray. There might be no Church, Pray. When we are persistent in prayer, things around change, Heaven will come and influence earth to eventually reflect the glory of God.
Quote When we pray, things will change to reflect the glory of God.
Prayer Heavenly Father, teach me how to pray I ask, in Jesus name, Amen.
Action Point Ultimately, it’s all about persistence and determination to see change through prayer.
