I Samuel 12:23 “Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way”
I Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.”
James 4:17 “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”
Make no mistake about our responsibility to pray. It is a command of God. There is no wiggle room. There is no way out. He has clearly spelled out our responsibilities. He has given us our marching orders. We are to pray ceaselessly.
We are to pray for our friends. We are to pray for our families. We are to pray for our communities. We are to pray for our churches. We are to pray for our Pastors. We are to pray for our teachers. We are to pray for our bosses. We are to pray for our leaders. We are to pray for our governments. We are to pray “for all men.” We are to pray “for kings, and for all that are in authority.”
Our friends, our families, our communities, our churches, our Pastors, our teachers, our bosses, our leaders, and our governments need us to do so. God has directed us to do so. Failing to do so is wrong. Failing to do so is faithless. Failing to do so is sin!
PLEASE PRAY FAITHFULLY AS WE FOLLOW THE COMMANDS OF GOD. Praying ceaselessly is our God-given duty and responsibility. God forbid that we should sin against the Lord by failing to do so.
