Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. (Romans 12:12)
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. (Colossians 4:2)
pray continually, (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Last week as we reflected on Bible Study we saw clearly that the Bible is the best manual for our Identity. It is, therefore, important to note that the Bible leaves no doubt about the essential role of prayer in the life of the believer. In each of the verses above, there is an expectation of full commitment where prayer is concerned. Note the words associated with prayer: “faithful”, “devote”, and “continually”.
Please prayerfully reflect on the Bible verses above.
Something to think about:
From your personal experience, what are clear indicators that you are either fully committed or not fully committed to prayer?
