Excerpt From: Bounds, E.M. “Power Through Prayer.”
Bounds statement is something I need to hear, that sometimes prayer is hard work. I don't always think of prayer as spiritual work.
I wish that because of all that God has done for me I will want to pray and be on my knees at all times. I wish prayer wasn't work sometimes. I can see that not accepting that prayer can be work will cause me to pray less. I need to accept that prayer don't come easy to me, and as much as it sadness me is the fact. If I don't accept this I will never become a "Woman of Prayer"
Dear God good morning, I am grieving that for me praying can be work. Once I start praying I don't want to stop but getting started is a whole other issue. The routine prayer comes easy, morning, night and during meals, but is the lifetime prayer that is hard.
Is the Ephesians 6:18 pray that is hard work. I don't naturally "pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests."
God please help me to learn the art of practing Ephesians 6:18. Give me the patience to not give up but to work hard to make Ephesians 6:18 the way of my life.
Is hard for me to believe that I can become a woman of prayer, however help me to not trust in how I feel but in you who as Luke 18:27 says; “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”
I love you God and to you be the glory.
In Jesus Name I pray Amen
