Are we the "same" after Prayer as we were before Prayer? Were we "...Sober in prayer..." (1 Peter 4:7)? Were we "sober" not only in abstaining from alcoholic drink, but also "sober" from our minds still "reeling" from indulgence of worldly pleasures, or being ""drunk" with successes and failures of worldly business. Do we really, "give ourselves unto prayer..." (1 Corinthians 7:5)? Do we really PREPARE TO PRAY? A "hurried" non-committed prayer can be the same as "no Prayer". It was once said, "...I have so much to do today, that I cannot accomplish it without 'two or three' hours of Prayer." Do we really think, "We accomplish less when we are doing more; or that we accomplish MORE by doing LESS"? In the Prayer Life of JESUS, HE agonized in Prayer. After laboring in Prayer and coming into agreement with GOD, the actions we have to take, ARE NO BURDEN AT ALL.
Abundant Blessings Always,
