Prayer and the Word! 2

Prayer and the Word! 2

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayer.” Acts 2:42

Do not let the mind wander off course of your source of wisdom, power, and strength while trying to keep up with the world’s demands. It is a good thing that we have a job and a fulfilling and rewarding life. However, it is also a good thing to continue with the source that gives us strength and confidence to carry on our faith. When we pray and read the word of God, our minds are set free from all distractions and temptations.

A young lady told me her story about her new job at an international institution some time ago. She was told to resume at 7:30 AM and will be closing by 4:30 PM. Well, since she was seeking it, she gladly took it even though it was moderate pay. Such is life, we endure the hardships of life, but we do not give up our hope in God.

2 Timothy 4:5 says, “But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

As she started her duties, she began to feel so uncomfortable after working for months; my duties and official responsibilities were expanding that she had to be leaving the office lately as 7 PM. She would get home with a weak body and mind, and often she discovered she was becoming too far from my prayer life and reading of the word because she had given herself to work. It took her a great discipline and conscious work to redeem her prayer life and fellowship in God’s word.

Brethren, I know it’s a difficult task to readjust your schedule, but I am sure you can find some ways to make it easier to pray and read the word of God. Jesus Christ never neglects the power of prayer; even with His busy schedule on earth, he always finds time to communicate with His Father in heaven to refresh and strengthen himself in the Lord. Mark 1:35 says, “And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.”

1. Thank you, Jesus, for all that you have done for me.
2. Please help me in my busy schedule to do what I need to be in your presence, always in Jesus’ name. Amen.
