Summoned to Pray

Prayer. Do you see it as a “last resort?” as in, “if all else fails –
Pray!” That is not how the Lord speaks of prayer. For the believer,
prayer is our FIRST line of defense against the attacks of Satan, and our
first line of offense as we seek to further God’s Kingdom on earth. Our
Lord Jesus prayed often and instructed His disciples to do the same.
Through prayer we not only make our requests known to God, but we establish
and maintain our relationship with Him. Prayer is not simply something to
do, it is an act of worship, faith and love. Prayer is mysterious, we do
not understand how it works, and yet the Lord is clear that we are to pray
without ceasing. May our hearts be opened to God’s work through prayer.
