Have you prayed, today? For many people, praying is reserved for meals and the bedtime now I lay me down to sleep type of 30 second prayers. That is all well and good, but I am referring to having a lifestyle of prayer. I am so thankful that we live in a free country. It is a place where we can choose to live for God, or not. Unfortunately, in many countries, that choice has been taken away.
Can you imagine living a life where you had to continually be watching out for those people who forbade your freedom? In light of all of the trouble brewing in our world; it seems that no place is safe from watchful eyes; thankfully, in America, we have freedom to worship.
How sad that many people have not caught on to the absolute privilege we have to be able to pray. There are so many people in the world who would gladly trade places with us, in America, just to have the liberty to worship as we do.
Let’s not be guilty of neglecting the power that is in us when we pray. We are a force that can defeat the powers of darkness with the light of God’s word, when we take up our spiritual weapons and boldly proclaim the name of Jesus in prayer.
What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
