How Much Have You Prayed?

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries1 Minutes

Jesus had an important decision to make: Who would be His close disciples? He knew the candidates and had spent time with them. We might assume that He had enough information to make His choices. But Jesus still felt the need to pray. He did not just pray a short prayer. He spent all night praying to the Father, praying until He had the answers He needed.

How many Christians make this kind of commitment to prayer? We may pray when we have decisions to make, but how intense is our prayer? How long do we pray? A few minutes? A few seconds?

Right now, search your heart. Think about the issues you are facing right now. Are you basing your decisions on your own experience and understanding? The opinions of people around you? Have you truly sought God?

The Bible assures us that He wants to give you His wisdom and guide you to make the right choices. But to receive His help, you need to call on Him and seek Him through dedicated prayer.

Today, commit to seek God for the issues you face. Commit time to seek Him until you have the answers you need, until you have His peace and His assurance. Pray for people you know who have needs. And pray for your nation. Pray for an outpouring of His Spirit on your nation’s leaders.
