Hindrances to Prayer, Part 38 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #449)

SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 15:29, "The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous."

PERSONAL ENCOURAGEMENT: The only discipline of the Christian faith that we are told to do “without ceasing” in I Thessalonians 5:17. Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, esteemed this matter of prayer very highly. Allow me to remind you that on one occasion Jesus got up a great while before day and prayed. Mark 1:35 states, “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.” If Jesus Christ had to pray so earnestly, there is no doubt that we, His followers, ought to pray as well.

QUOTE: Eben Alexander, "Communicating with God is the most extraordinary experience imaginable, yet at the same time it's the most natural one of all, because God is present in us at all times. Omniscient, omnipotent, personal-and loving us without conditions. We are connected as One through our divine link with God."
