A Life Committed to Prayer

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Paul had an amazing ministry. He had seen the power of God flow through his life through many mighty miracles and powerful messages. Yet, in spite of all this experience, Paul never forgot the importance of prayer.

Even though he was an apostle, called by Jesus Himself, Paul recognized that every prayer was important. He was accompanied on his journeys by people like Timothy, Luke, and Silas. But he frequently asked “ordinary” people, like the Believers in Ephesus, to pray for him.

To Paul, prayer was not an empty religious exercise or ritual. He had seen prayer open miraculous doors and make a difference. He knew that prayer was an integral part of spiritual warfare.

Paul understood that no one is above the need for prayer. We cannot merely assume God’s blessing or that we’ll automatically be successful, even if we’ve been successful in the past. We must continue to seek God through prayer. Paul knew that all Believers face demonic forces and the fiery darts of the devil, and we cannot be victorious without the power of prayer. This is not something to take lightly.

Paul recognized that the work of God cannot be done without being committed to prayer. This commitment to prayer must be a central part of our lives. We need to pray for Christian friends and family members, for pastors, missionaries, Christian leaders, and Soul-winning organizations like Inspiration Ministries. From the most to the least visible, all of us need prayer!

Today, commit yourself to a life of prayer as never before. As Paul said, “Never stop praying.”
