Prayer is an essential spiritual discipline we each must come to practice regularly. It’s a powerful tool that we have access to through Christ’s sacrifice. Oftentimes, we pursue God’s plan for our lives and start out with a strong prayer life, but the enemy sabotages us and we fall victim to his plans to stop us from reaching God’s full potential in our lives.
We have to remember that the enemy is at work always and is very strategic. He wants to steal what God has given us, destroy His plans for us, and kill what God is growing in our lives. We cannot fall victim to the enemy’s plan. We must stay rooted in prayer!
Prayer is not something that should be done passively. The Bible speaks time and time again of how important prayer is and how we should pray without ceasing. We must continue the course no matter what storms our life may bring. Stay faithful and trust in God’s ultimate plan!
No matter what you may be experiencing in life, God is with you. God can provide. Go to Him in faith. Continue to pray and do not give up when things don’t turn out the way you expected they would – God has a master plan that is better than one we could ever conceive! Trust in Him.
