We should pray diligently. As you go throughout the course of your day, from one moment to the next, you never know what might happen. Continued pray is necessary for God’s protective arms over you and your family, it also wards off the enemy and his tactics. Prayer is essential for the Christian and one should never cease praying.
The bible informs us that many times we do not know how to pray, and when we pray, According to James 4:3 “You ask, and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may consume it on your lusts. In other words “You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you might spend it on your pleasures.” The Bible teaches us how to diligently seek Him, as well as how to pray diligently.
Proverbs 1:28 tells us that, “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently but they will not find me.
1 John 5:14 tells us, “And this is the confidence that we have before Him: If we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. (James 1:6)
Encourage Yourself: Note that when you communicate with God, He loves and embraces this communication with you. Remember to pray diligently!
1) – God has a plan for you!
The Bible informs us that in John 3:16, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” As well as John 10:10 letting us know that, Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly”
The challenges we face
2) – Man is full of sin and continues to deny God
We have all fallen short of the glory of God, which the Bible calls “sin.” Note that the Bible says, “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The wages of sin is death, spiritual separation from our Father (Romans 6:23), but the gift of God is eternal life.
Great News for all?
3) – Jesus died and rose for your sins!
The Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus in our place, was so that we could have a right relationship with the Father, and forever live. The scriptures tells us that “God demonstrated His love to us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives! “Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).
4) – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
Salvation is not earned; we are only saved by grace through God when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is confess you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. To turn from your sinful ways—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ will accept and love you. What matters to Him is the content of your heart, the honesty, and true repentance. A prayer below to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior:
I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness.
I believe Jesus Christ Your Son, died for the sins of the world,
and that you raised Him to life.
I want to trust and accept Him as my personal Savior,
from this moment forward.
Teach me Lord your ways and direct my life, and help me to do your will.
I pray this prayer in the Jesus name. Amen.”
