《今日靈修默想》:「義人祈禱所發的力量是大有功效的。」(雅5:16b)

默想一:你要看見祈禱所發的力量是大有功效嗎?大有功效的禱告與禱告的人有關。因為「主的眼看顧義人,主的耳聽他們的祈禱」(彼前3:12)問題是我們要如何成為義人?主應許:「我們若認自己的罪,神是信實的,是公義的,必要赦免我們的罪,洗淨我們一切的不義」(約壹1:9)。義人時常謙卑認罪,是蒙神「赦免其過、遮蓋其罪」的人,神只垂聽義人的禱告。

默想二:禱告對基督徒生活為什麼是不可或缺?因為它像呼吸對人那樣的重要。禱告是神給祂兒女的祝福管道。禱告從來不是浪費時間,而是使用時間的最佳方式。我們禱告,神就做事。越會跟神禱告,越認識神的心意。不論你遇到困難、疾病、失敗,你都可以帶到主面前,在祂沒有難成的事。多少時候,我們白白地受苦,都因我們未將萬事帶到最知心的朋友耶穌,祂願意幫助,因祂體恤我們。

禱告:親愛的主,感謝祢賜給我禱告的特權。求祢教導我,無論在工作、讀書、休息、坐車、或是走路都能善用禱告。不僅看重自己與祢的禱告,也學會跟弟兄姊妹同心的禱告,更重要的是讓我成為一個儆醒禱告的人。奉主耶穌的聖名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” (Jas 5:16b)

Meditation one: Do you want to see a prayer is powerful and effective? A powerful and effective prayer is related to the people who pray. “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayer.” (1Pe 3:12) The question is how do we become righteous? The Lord promised: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1Jn 1:9). The righteous person often humbly confesses, and is the one whose ”transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered” by God. God only listens to the prayers of the righteous.

Meditation two: Why is prayer indispensable for a Christian’s life? It is because prayer is as important as breathing to people. Prayer is a conduit of God’s blessing to His children. Prayer is never a waste of time, but the best way to use time. We pray and God will do things. The more you pray to God, the more you will know God’s will. Whether you encounter difficulties, illnesses, or failures, you can bring them to the Lord, and there is nothing too hard for Him. How many times have we suffered in vain, because we have not brought everything to the most intimate friend Jesus, He is willing to help, because He is compassionate to us.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for giving me the privilege of prayer. Please teach me to use every opportunity to pray whether I am working, studying, resting, driving, or walking. Not only I value my prayer to You, but also learn to pray together with my brothers and sisters with unity of mind. More importantly, let me be a person who is sober in prayer. I pray in the holy name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!
