If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.           1 Peter 4:11

NEGLECT NOT PRAYER

When we consider how great God is, the very fact that he hears oUr prayers becomes difficult to comprehend and yet we are assured that the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteosu man avails much - James 5 v 16; and that "the eyes of Lord are over the righteouas, and his ears are open to their prayers" (1Pet 3 v 12).

Truly when we pray to God we are talking to him. If we would be careful what we said to an important dignitary, how much more so when we are talking to the Creator of heaven and earth?
Is it any wonder that Solomon tells us: "Be not rash with your mouth, and let not your heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and you are upon earth: therefore let your words be few" (Ecc 5 v 2).
What a wonderful thing prayer is! Although God is in heaven and we upon earth, yet he wants us to talk to him! "You shall call upon me, and you shall go and pray unto me, saith the Lord, and I will hearken unto you" (Jer 29 v 12).
"And you shall seek me and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart" (Jer 29 v 13).

We need to make prayer a very real, and disciplined part of our everyday life. Jesus often spent the night in prayer. If the son needed the strength and direction that such communion with his Father gave him, how much more do we need the strength that comes from prayer with him.
