Some people need prayer more than others. At least that's what I've always thought.
Sometimes I need prayer more than others. At least that's what I've always thought.
The truth is that I recognize the need for prayer more at times. When stuff is really happening in my life, I get on my knees, because I need guidance, wisdom, and intervention. When life is sailing along smoothly, I can give a token nod to prayer. Lord, bless me, keep me focused, yada, yada, yada.
I treat my prayers for other people the same way. When I know they have a situation, I put more energy into my prayers for them.
I guess that's just the reality of life. Surely I will always pray more when I know of a pressing need. Maybe I can raise my level of prayer, though, when everything seems smooth.
How my life would be different, if I could lay every day before the Lord with energy and passion and conviction!
