31 Days of Prayer ~ in His Word 1-17-2024

Let’s keep it going! Today let’s make our prayer time longer or more times of prayer per day! If you start your day in prayer, and add on as you go through the day, you can kind of keep in constant prayer!

Its like you have your friend on the phone while you do your day. Jesus went back and forth praying with the Father asking or his cup to pass from him, but he knew either way it had to be done. He called on his Disciples to pray for Himself, that the ‘flesh would be strong’ in Him. His prayer team kept falling asleep, probably because Jesus was praying long hard prayers.

Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter, “Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour?  Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!”

Then Jesus left them a second time and prayed, “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.” Matthew 26:40-42

I am not asking you to pray for one hour, but maybe more than a five minute drive by prayer?  These beginnings to prayers are meant as a starter, kind of like a soup starter? You begin with what I write, then pray as the Spirit leads you to!

Heavenly Father, help us to pray. Keep us alert, awake, and attuned to Your Holy presence. Show us who, what or when to pray as we go throughout our day. Make our spirit and flesh strong in You. …
