THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Jim & Ethel were driving across the “panhandle” of Texas, when they saw one of those
small tornadoes going across the plain.
The tornado struck a house, first taking the roof into the air, then pulling the walls up.
Jim & Ethel decided to go and see if anyone had been home.
They drove to the house, and even the floor was gone.
There, in the cellar, was a man kneeling.
They called to him, “Sir, are you ok? Was anyone else with you?”
He answered, looking up now, “Yes, I’m ok, now. And no one was with me except
Jesus; and we were having an URGENT conversation!”
2 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
3 Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:
4 That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
We see, in the Bible, that men began to pray early (Gen. 4:26).
And the final word of the Bible is “AMEN!” (Rev. 22:21)
Throughout the Bible we find instances of people who prayed,
including Jesus – even all night sometimes (Luke 6:12).
Prayer is the tearful beginning of a sinner begging for salvation.
Prayer is the chief weapon by which Christians fight all their lives.
And, prayer is the final whisper of victory when death comes.
In our Scripture above, Paul says, “CONTINUE in prayer.”
How? How can one do this?
Prayer must become a constant ATTITUDE.
Prayer is an attitude where God is first, all other things second, and
we talk to Him about EVERYTHING!
When we aren’t requesting, we should be thanking!
And when you think you’ve run out of things for which to pray,
pray for ME, and all others who are preaching the Gospel.
Pray that God will make an “open door” to preach the Gospel.
Pray that we will be enabled to correctly communicate the Gospel.
CONTINUE in prayer!
