Developing a Sustaining Prayer Life

We all will go through ups and downs, trials and tribulations, joy and pain, seasons of seed time and harvest but we must remember to continue to pray. It is important to stay consistent in your prayer life. Say a prayer in the morning and then again at night before you go to sleep at minimum should be an easy thing to do.

Are you grateful when you wake up because not everyone did? If so, tell God thank you and that is the beginning of a prayer. When you make it through the challenges of your day, tell God thank you and that is the beginning of another prayer which is a great way to end each and every day. Just remembering to be grateful of Godís blessings should motivate you to pray daily.

Consistency is important in all seasons of your life.

Holy Bible New Living Translation reads: Romans 12:12: Paul the Apostle, reminded the Christians of Rome: Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble and keep on praying. When we as Christians continue in prayer, strength stirs up to remind us of the hope we have in Christ Jesus. As we get into Godís presence, his active word reminds us of the continued blessings and peace from the Lord over our lives. We utilize the power that is given to us, to take authority over the enemy in Jesus name.

Paul is reminding us as Christians we need to have a focused and steady prayer life and this will give us peace. He states: Donít worry about anything, pray about everything.

Prayer strengthens our relationship to God and bolsters our faith that we can stand on the Word of God and know that our prayers are not only being heard but will in due season be answered.

1Thessalonian 5:17 Pray without ceasing. (NKJV)

This means you have to continually pray!

Think about all the things that you, your family and friends have been through and the victories encountered. That will give you more than enough to praise Him about and that is things in the past.

Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him. (NKJV)

God is still in control of today and everything you are dealing with now and everything you are going to have to deal with tomorrow. Do you want God to be in the situation with you as he was with the three Hebrew boys in the fire?

Daniel 3:25 Look!Ē he answered, ďI see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.Ē (NKJV)

When you know that God is where your help comes from and you are standing on his Word to do what He said, then remembering to praise Him and to pray should not be an issue anymore!

God Bless!
