James 4:2-3 “Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”

Evangelist and pastor RA Torrey said the following:

“We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results.”

American Christians need God’s power. We need activity that yields accomplishment. We need services that yield conversions. We need machinery that yields results.

Instead we lack power. We are active without accomplishment. We have services without conversions. We attend to machinery without results.

We are too busy to pray, and wonder why we lack power and accomplishment, conversions and results. We are perplexed, though the formula is simple … pray! Pray regularly and fervently. Ask often for God’s power. Prayer is a far better use of our time than relying on ourselves for meaningful results.

PLEASE MAKE THE WISEST USE OF YOUR TIME BY PRAYING REGULARLY AND FERVENTLY FOR GOD’S POWER. If we are too busy for prayer, then we are too busy for power. Our busyness will self-perpetuate activity and self-prevent accomplishment.

NOTE: Please share the PLUS ministry and the need to pray for our nation and its leaders with others. We must spread the message that the power to change our country comes from stepping aside from life’s busyness to beg for God’s power.
