Here is the truth.
The enemy would rather us do anything than pray.
He would rather us do anything than connect face to face with the one who makes the earth spin and float.
He would rather us serve the local church and serve hard than pray.
He would rather see us study the Word of God till our heads are so full of BS (Bible Study 😉 ) that we do nothing but vomit out scripture that is seeped in knowledge and not prayer.
He would rather see us write beautiful worship songs and write amazing books and preach amazing sermons than spend a moment in prayer.
And he is winning.
Prayerlessness is an epidemic sweeping our faith.
Busyness is the virus that is causing this epidemic.
And foreigners who bind themselves to the Lord
to minister to him,
to love the name of the Lord,
and to be his servants,
all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it
and who hold fast to my covenant—
7 these I will bring to my holy mountain
and give them joy in my house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and sacrifices
will be accepted on my altar;
for my house will be called
a house of prayer for all nations. – Isaiah 56:6-7
God himself through his prophet Isaiah tells us that we will be in a HOUSE OF PRAYER.
Not a house of BS. 😉
Not a house of servanthood.
Not a house of singing.
Not a house of reading church planting books.
A House Of Prayer.
Let us pray friends.
And when we do…
We are promised something far greater than awards…
