Saying a few words in the morning, then maybe a few more at lunch and finally a quick repetition at night is not the "prayer" that satisfies. A devotional heart is the thought and act of a relationship with GOD. It is our deliberate communication through a living CONVERSATION which becomes the source of our WORSHIP and energy. It is the constant awareness of GOD'S enfolding (completely absorbed and surrounded inside and out) Presence; inward conversations with CHRIST and private, continuous worship of GOD in SPIRIT and TRUTH! To have a DEVOTIONAL heart we must abide in CHRIST, walk in the SPIRIT, pray without ceasing and meditate in (not on the WORD, but IN the WORD) the WORD of GOD day and night. It is separation from the world and obedience to the WILL OF GOD. Living with a DEVOTIONAL HEART is not something we receive and then wait to go to HEAVEN. It is not one time receiving of true HOLINESS and SPIRITUAL power and then it is forgotten. Every experience in the SPIRITUAL LIFE must be made against the resistance of the world, flesh and the evil one. John 15:7, "If you remain in ME, and MY words remain in you...." Prayer is not a few words, It is the constant awareness and dependence upon GOD; WE ARE OUR PRAYERS, WE ARE THE LETTERS OF GOD! PRAYER IS CONSTANT WITHIN US!
