My dearly Beloved
Prayer is an essential part of our lives just as food is. If we don’t receive this daily manna our spiritual lives will die out completely. Our relationship with God wanes and we lose our joy, peace and gradually slip into sorrow and anguish. Here is a story that can revive your prayer life.
Once, a poor peasant had invited one of his relatives from the city for dinner. He too happily accepted his invitation, went to his house and sat down to dine. Before eating, the peasant bowed down his head and prayed. On seeing this, the relative was greatly annoyed. He said, ‘What are you doing? This is an old custom. Nowadays the learned people do not follow this.” The peasant replied sadly, ‘Yes, like you, some people in my farm too do not pray”. The relative from the city was excited to hear this and asked, “Who are these smart ones?” The peasant replied, “It is none other than the pigs in my farm that eat without saying grace”.
Beloved, we may hold a high position in the society. We may be highly educated but we should be people who pray. I realized the significance of prayer after got married and it has changed me completely. Today I want to encourage all of you to pray daily and thank the Lord for everything.
Fill me with Your presence that I may enjoy every moment with You. Teach me to pray like You and lead me in the way I need to go by Your Holy Spirit. Father, without You I am nothing. I need you every hour, every day of my life. Grant me Your grace to always do Your perfect will. Let no day pass by without communing with You. Father bless me to be a blessing to many and bring them into Your kingdom. Bless You Master!
In Jesus name
