Pray—First and Most - June 17, 2016

Let’s pray—first! Traveling to help the hungry? Be sure to bathe your mission in prayer. Weary of a world of racism and division? So is God. And he would love to talk with you about it.

Let’s pray—most! Did God call us to preach without ceasing? Or teach without ceasing? Or have committee meetings without ceasing? Or sing without ceasing? No, but he did call us to “pray without ceasing” (I Thessalonians 5:17).

Did Jesus declare…my house shall be called a house of study? Fellowship? Music? A house of activities? No, but he did say “My house will be called a house of prayer” (Mark 11:17).  Jesus said, “When two of you get together on anything and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action” (Matthew 18:19).

So, Pray! Pray first and pray most!

From God is With You Every Day
