《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” (Mar 1:35)
Meditation one: How about your recent prayer life? Generally speaking, what are the three major obstacles for Christians to pray? They are busy, busy and busy! At that time, Jesus was busy for the kingdom of God, but He valued prayer before ministry through fellowship with God the Father in a solitary place, and regained strength by being closer to God the Father. Jesus needs to pray, not to mention us? The busier you are, the more you need to pray; when you do not want to pray, it is you who really need to pray. Don’t anticipate a fruitful ministry without a life of prayer, let alone God do greater things for you.
Meditation two: What is the best way to lead us not into temptation and deliver us from the evil one? Watch and pray! Do you want to be more than a conqueror in spiritual warfare? Pray urgently! Prayer is not a “spare tire”; cry out only when you encounter difficulties, but a “steering wheel” that guides us how to go the right way. Remember, without prayer, don’t touch God’s ministry.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for setting Your examples of prayer. Give me wisdom and perseverance, so I can cherish the prayer time I have with You. Lord, what I can do for the family, the church, and the country is limited, but I would like to watch and pray for them. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
