Teach Us to Pray

In the gospel of Luke, chapter 11, Jesus was teaching us how to pray. He used the illustration of a man coming to his friend’s house saying, “Someone at midnight has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.” And He says even though he won’t rise because he’s his friend, yet because of his insistence, he will rise and give him as much as he needs.

Jesus says, “I say to you, ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.” If you know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?

My friend, it’s midnight. It’s a darkened time. It’s a difficult time. It’s a time of struggle and trial and distress in our culture, and people are coming our way. You and I need something to set before them. We have to go to the throne of God and say, “God, You have what I need.”

It’s time to pray.

    Yeap, it is sure we are living in darkened days and difficult times now. Evil is growing everywhere. And the more we move in the time, the more I come to the conclusion that I can't make it in my own strength. My life is a big mess. I tried to do things both in the spiritual and in the secular in my own strenghs, but I notice that each time I make a plan, my plans are failing. And yes, in this time of history it is time to pray, it is time I get back seriously in my prayer closet again.
