Are you prayed up for that important task before you? It could be a job interview you are to attend; it could be travel to a distant land; or it could be planning for a much anticipated for wedding? Have you spend enough time in prayer about the task ahead of you?
Why pray? Will it change anything about the task? Nothing will most likely change! But what will be affected by your prayer will be the quality of the outcome of the task before you.
You may have your job interview and succeed in getting the job but ending up wishing you never got it in the first place. Staying power, satisfaction can only be achieved through prayer!
There are unseen events that can suddenly happen across your path as you travel, or as you start enjoying your marriage. Prepare for such, by praying before the event. And stay prayed up, to encounter the unforeseen with God’s strength and wisdom.
When the Lord Jesus started on His mission here on earth, He chose for Himself twelve disciples. They were all different in nature, background and professions. Each one of them was to play a special role in the Master’s ministry here on earth. That also included Judas Iscariot who was to later betray the Him. But all this had been prayed for, the night before choosing these disciples. And in the course of His interaction with the disciples and the people who needed ministering to, Jesus continued to withdraw to solitary places to seek His Father’s strength and wisdom. He stayed ‘prayed up’.
So dear friend, whatever it is you are planning for today, tomorrow or for the future, stay prayed up! God will guide you as you interact with Him in prayer. God bless you.
