I was reading my Bible over the weekend and was struck by this phrase in Matthew that said, "when you pray." It didn't say, if you pray, but when. It not only was mentioned once, but three times. The Lord reminded me of the importance of having an attitude of prayer throughout each day. It is something that should be characteristic of my life as a Christian. I want to be known as a woman of prayer and devotion to God.
Yesterday at church services my pastor spoke on prayer. What was especially meaningful was that he didn't just speak about it, but had us actually do something about it. He set up four stations throughout our church sanctuary and had us get up and move to each station to pray. Prayer for ourselves, prayer for our community of believers, prayer for our leaders, and prayer for the lost.
So what is characteristic of your prayer life? If or When?
