When we observe the men and women God used in the Bible, we can see that they lived prayerful lives. For example, King David ruled over Israel, yet he was continually seeking the presence of God (Psalm 27:8). Daniel had a high position in the Babylonian government, but he also kept his commitment to prayer (Daniel 6:10). Finally, we have our Savior Jesus Christ who healed multitudes of people during His ministry, yet He still rose early in the morning to pray (Mark 1:35; Luke 5:15,16).
How many of us in those positions would think we are too busy to pray? The truth is, regardless of our title (business owner, parent, student or etc) we have no valid excuse before Christ as to why we don’t pray. If you are struggling in this area, ask Jesus to help you prioritize spending time with Him. In prayer, Jesus will equip you to take care of your responsibilities and enjoy your life!
“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;”
