"Pray At All Times..."

January 8, 2015

“Pray At All Times…”

Blessings folk!

We have seen that we are to put on the armor of God.
We have seen the things that the armor provides.

What next?

Ephesians 6:18
18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,

We are to pray at all times.
All times.
Every breath, every thought, every deed is a prayer unto the Most High.
This changes how we view prayer.
Prayer is far more than “assuming the position” and saying a few words.
Prayer is walking in constant communion with the Lord.
We are empowered to do so through the Spirit.
Therefore, we are to pray in the Spirit.
Led by the Spirit.

Notice that we are to pray and petition/supplicate.
Petition for all the saints.

This is an active, ongoing, without-ceasing lifestyle.

We are to pray and be on the alert.
Alert for what?
Strategies of the evil one.
Things which would distract.
Things which would dissuade.
The leading of the Lord.

We are to pray/petition with all perseverance.
Pressing in.
Not just a “passing thought of a prayer”, but focus, persevering petition.

Let us do so.
