Love, Light and Life

... more than a devotional



​ Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, Luke 18:1 (NKJV) 

The importance of prayer is one that cannot be overstated. Jesus told a parable to pass the message that men should (as a matter of necessity) pray always and not lose heart. What this means is that a man who does not prayer always, will often lose heart.

Jesus knew that life on earth would be challenging. And the truth is, the challenges aren't ones that we can face by our own strength. Many things we encounter will make us lose strength. Many things will be reason enough for one to give up. 

The increasing evil in the world can cause a person to lose heart. And so Jesus says, rather than lose heart, pray. He knew exactly what He was talking about. Because He Himself lived His life by prayer.

Also practically, there are many times you'd feel like giving up. Many times you'd feel so confused. And it would seem like nothing really makes sense. But the moment you spend time in prayer with the Spirit of God, you realise that within you, there reason to live again. A life of success is impossible without a life of prayer. Hallelujah.

Prayer: Thank you dear Lord for granting to me the Spirit of prayer and the ability to pray. I know you are with me, and so the challenges of this world cannot stop me. I live by your strength and power in me. In Jesus name. Amen
