THE BELIEVER’S HOTLINE TO GOD
“Pray without ceasing.”
—1 Thessalonians 5:17
The Bible has quite a lot to say about prayer and praying.
One feature of the believer’s prayer: Prayer should be a constant aspect of the Christian’s waking life.
“Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;”
Prayer by the believer is his lifeline to heaven. Prayer is the hotline to the throne room of God.
As time grows ever shorter, the believer finds himself drawn to prayer. Many times, prayer is the only time peace is obtainable in this wicked and chaotic world.
The believer should be aware of any spare time which can be used for prayer. This includes time spent in the car, but it also includes any interval of time available at home.
The believer is increasingly being drawn to his knees.
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
As far as prayer in the end times, there are two instructions from Jesus concerning prayer in the end times. One is more specific in its instructions.
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
The other is more general.
“Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.”
BOTH command the Christian to both WATCH and PRAY.
As the time of the end grows nearer, Christians should ALWAYS BE PRAYING.
The enemy knows the importance of prayer. This is why prayer time is regularly interrupted by all manner of distractions.
Unlike most activities, the more one prays, the more refreshed afterwards the person praying becomes.
Prayer: there is NOTHING more important in the times in which we live.
“And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”
For the times in which we live, there is no more important advice than PRAY ALWAYS.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
