Pray Without Ceasing

Continue In Uncompromising Christian Lifestyle

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

Voice of the Lord (20 April 2022)

Before I got up for my morning prayers, I received a Word from the Lord, there was no vision, but I felt the Lord's Awesome Presence and I heard Him say in a THUNDEROUS LOUD VOICE that vibrated throughout the universe, "BE STEADFAST". 

Brief Prophetic Word

Beloved brethren, the Lord has revealed to us that World War III is unavoidable and inevitable. Because the World is NOT looking to the Lord for solutions instead, they are focused on fighting for the resources of this world. The Lord commands all Christians to pray for the Ukraine and the war in that Country will affect the entire global community economically. The conflict there is not isolated it will soon involve and affect us all.

Brethren, we intended to write an article on things to come but we still waiting on the Lord to give us the go-ahead on that revelation. Meanwhile, we'd like to encourage you to be steadfast in your faith and conviction in the Lord, and to be consistent in your prayers. In our prayer I and prayer II articles we emphasized that the Lord is not pleased with prayers that are offered hurriedly and without the motivation of faith behind it (James 5:13-16; Colossians 4:2). 

Often, people pray for about five (5) minutes daily and expect answers from God. We have already shared that a Christian's prayer life takes on the model of a lifestyle (Luke 5:16; Ephesians 3:14; Colossians 4:2). Like we said elsewhere on this blog, a Christian's daily prayers are intercessory in nature just as our Lord and the apostle Paul showed us in the aforementioned verse above.

In other words, when we lead a prayerful lifestyle, we will always be 'wrestling' with something or 'wrestling' something from the devil for our own good or for the good and well-being of others (2 Timothy 1:3; 2 Corinthians 12:8-10). The Bible discourages idleness in every sphere of our Christian lives (1 Thessalonians 5:14; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-12). It is a fact, that many Christians are engaged in worldliness through their addictive television watching and their cellular phone social networking habits. As it is, these worldly Christians care little about the salvation of souls and even that of their own close family members. their appetite is to feed their social and worldly needs.

In conclusion, when we Christians will get our turn to appear before the Lord, we will have to 'give account for the work we did', not our good works but our works of service in the body will be revealed (2 Corinthians 5:10). Let us thus keep up the pace of our Christian faith as we guard and execute our Lord's commands faithfully and ungrudgingly.

Blessed Faith

Brother Glenn
