BUT prayer has enemies - they are activism, comfort and self-sufficiency.
The human heart knows much of power and seeks many endeavours. But these are in vain, a
mere whistling into a gale, when not reinforced by the strength of Heaven.
Prayer is releasing heaven's power into a human's soul.
There remains the divine call to unceasing prayer.
Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Is this instruction a mere exaggeration, a 2000 year old hyperbole, or a dalliance upon words to stir a lazy soul?
Could this weigh with an equal gravity in the Lord’s eyes to – he who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:33)
The more I age the more I longingly gaze towards the core of the Kingdom; those outrageous claims that Jesus once lived but have been diluted by time, life, learning and laziness.
What would your prayer-life look like if God was in charge of your schedule? ~ Bill Hybels
