“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful” (Colossians 4:2)
At the beginning of the year I sensed the Lord's urging for me to grow in the area of prayer. To set aside focused time to pray expectantly. Since this time I have been meeting weekly with two very dear ladies who share the same passion for praying. We pray for each other, people we know, believers around the world as well as many other things.
One of the beautiful things that has come from our time together is that our prayer has morphed into a time of being directed by the Lord rather than us bringing a list of items to petition Him with. In other words, we have gotten very bold and have grown in our ability to pray as He directs.
“Prayer is not begging God to do something that He is loath to do. It is not overcoming reluctance in God. It is enforcing Christ’s victory over Satan” Paul E. Billheimer; Destined for the Throne.
