Prayer

Posted by Jeremy Carter on 19th Nov 2018

“Will you not keep watch with me for one hour?” Matt 26:40 There is one calling that every follower has and that no follower is exempt from.....PRAYER! Jesus the very Son of God saw the need to “get away” from everything and pray when He walked the earth. He saw the need to teach the value of prayer and have prayer meetings with His disciples. He even told those who walked with him they had no “POWER” to do Kingdom work because they had not fasted and prayed. Jesus said that HIS house (the church) shall be called a HOUSE OF PRAYER but the religious of the day had made it a den of thieves. We want the miracles, signs and wonders to follow but do we want to spend time in prayer? We want to see family members come to the Lord but are we willing to seek God and spend time in worship and prayer? We believe that God still heals the sick but are we “scared” to pray and ask Him to heal? Jesus was facing death.....he simply asked His disciples to watch and pray......He returned to them several times to find them “sleeping.” We wonder why the church feels so “sleepy” these days......She’s not praying......She keeps falling asleep......unaware that prayer can change things.....Prayer can make a difference!
