TIME FOR PRAYER!
How long should we pray each day? The simple answer is – longer. How much should I prayer? The answer is – more! Every Christian I have ever known has questioned the quality or quantity of their prayer life. We hear (or preach) messages about the great saints like Luther or Wesley who spent hours a day in prayer only to conclude there is no way we can do the same. While these mighty men from our heritage seem exceptional, the truth is that you can do something about your prayer life right now. You can grow in the time you give God each day. You can spend more and better time in prayer. The best “Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.” (Psalm 4:1)
🔹AS PART OF OUR SPIRITUAL “RE-SET” IN JANUARY, I AM CHALLENGING OUR CONGREGATION TO READ THE ENTIRE NEW TESTAMENT THIS MONTH! IT REQUIRES ABOUT 8-9 CHAPTERS PER DAY, BUT YOU CAN DO IT – WE WILL DO IT TOGETHER!
I SUGGEST YOU DIVIDE YOUR READINGS INTO MORNING AND EVENING. THAT WAY YOU WILL KEEP UP. IF YOU FALL BEHIND GET CAUGHT UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
