3 Reasons to Always Pray



“The less I pray, the harder it gets.”

– Martin Luther

His Resources

The Bible says that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10). This doesn’t mean God only owns a thousand hills and all the cattle on them. In fact, the whole earth is His because He created it. He has ownership over all that is, including all we have and even our own selves (1 Corinthians 6:20). So why shouldn’t we pray if we have a need? God has it all; and He’s a good God, willing to share His blessings with us.

His Power

God reigns supreme. Where the Supreme Court rules, He overrules because He is God over all of His creation, including His creatures (us!). So tap into God’s power for whatever it is you need. It’s not right to pray for all we want because wants and needs are not the same thing. We might want something, but God knows better what we need than we do. In fact, He knows our needs before they even come to our attention. So why not pray to the God Who can do whatever He pleases?

His Will

In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus taught His disciples to pray for God’s will to be done here on earth as it’s already being done in heaven. Jesus instructed them (and us) to pray for God’s kingdom to come. We know this is His will, but also pray for His will to be done here on earth (Matthew 6:10), particularly in our lives. If we seek God’s will, we will have our prayers in alignment with God’s will. Prayer is indispensable. We shouldn’t leave home without it.

Conclusion

The Apostle Paul was a great man of prayer, knowing that everything depended on it, which is why he wrote we should “pray without ceasing” (1st Thess 5:17), and when praying, “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1st Thess 5:18). Since this is God’s will, that ought to be our will too.

Martin Luther Quote – Your House



“What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow.”

Martin Luther

Martin Luther Quote – Service To God



“The idea that the service to God should have only to do with a church altar, singing, reading, sacrifice, and the like is without doubt but the worst trick of the devil. How could the devil have led us more effectively astray than by the narrow conception that service to God takes place only in a church and by the works done therein…The whole world could abound with the services to the Lord, Gottesdienste – not only in churches but also in the home, kitchen, workshop, field.”
