Prayer is the most important thing in a person’s life that calls themselves a Christian. Why is it important? It is important because it is what Jesus Christ, our Savior did early in the morning alone in a quiet solitary place. He wanted to be alone with His Father, and our Father to commune with Him. Jesus prayed for all of us before we were born. He prayed for us while he was on the Cross, by saying, ”Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” He said that for all people, not just for those that were there that day.
See, when we pray and give it all to God we have nothing to worry about. When He forgives us, we are forgiven. We are set free. Prayer is powerful. Prayer changes things, and it can change us if we let it. In order for that to happen, we must want to change for the better so we can be better, not just for ourselves, but also for Jesus.
Prayer can soften the hardest hearts. Prayer can make us love our enemies, and pray for those that have wronged us. Prayer brings us closer to Jesus: it helps our faith to grow stronger, and also our trust in God. We all need prayer at some point in our lives. We are human beings. We need to always be watching and praying because of the enemy that is out there to destroy us.
We have an enemy, and his name is Satan. He is a liar and the father of all lies. That is just who he is. He walks this earth seeking to steal, kill, destroy, and wreak havoc. He is trying to turn many people against God so they will follow him, but what those don’t know that follow him is that their destination is HELL for all eternity!!!
He tried to tempt Jesus, but Jesus fought him with God’s Word and that is what we have to do too. We have authority over the enemy, he has no power over us unless it is given to him. We must use God’s Word every day of our lives to fight the enemy. He was defeated two thousand years ago, and he is still defeated. He already knows that his destiny is Hell. Hell was not created for people; it was created for Satan and the demons and all of the angels that fell with him when God kicked him out of heaven.
We have a choice of who we are going to serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!! Choose this day who you will serve while it is called today. Don’t wait until it is too late. Choose while the blood is still running warm in your veins because can a dead person praise the Lord? The answer is NO!! You must have a made up mind. Choose today, because tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone, not even our next breath.
Our bodies return to dust but our souls belongs to God. We all are going to have to stand before Him someday to give an account for everything that was done in our lives here on earth. Whether it be good or bad we will have to answer for it.
Do you want to live an eternal life with Jesus, or do you want to burn for all eternity with Satan, choose where you want to spend eternity. God sent His One And ONLY SON TO DIE FOR OUR SINS so we would not be separated from Him anymore!! When we believe in Jesus and turn our lives over to Him, we have eternal life in Him!! (See John 3:16). Jesus is the Living Word. Try Jesus, but don’t wait until it is to late.
If you have not talked to Jesus in a very long time for whatever reason, or if you have never spoken to Him and would like to get to know Him, call on His Precious name; He will answer. He is always ready to listen. He will come to you wherever you are. He loves you so much, more than you will ever know. Repent of your sins and ask Him to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior; you will be glad you did. It is the most important decision you will ever make in your life.
May God bless you and keep you in the hollow of His beautiful hands. Amen.
