Be on the Alert! [11/9/2011]

Ephesians 6:18  With all prayer and pettition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view,  be on the alert with all perserverance and petition for all the saints.

'be on the alert' means to STAY AWAKE, MINDFUL, MENTALLY SHARP

Ever find yourself falling asleep when you pray?  I have. I could blame it on the devil. He knows God is powerful and the devil doesn't want my prayers answered.  I could blame it on my task filled day. God, You certainly know all the things I have had to do and think about today!

However, I am convicted by these words, be on the alert, because I realize I have not prioritized prayer in my daily life. I would not permit myself to fall asleep at my job.  I would not doze off while talking to someone or during meal time! I would not take a nap while driving!   If I did, I would be irresponsible, rude, and even dangerous. If something is important to me, I purpose to give it my full attention.

Let's come together, fully awake and keenly aware of HIS presence, that we may persevere with and for one another in prayer.
