The Most Dangerous Prayer

It’s sad to say, but I believe that for most of us, our prayers are lukewarm. We pray, but we are not passionate about the things we speak. Although, we aren’t “stale” in our prayer time either…we are just… “safe”

Prayer doesn’t need to be elaborate, as Biblically, Jesus reminds us that prayer isn’t about how long we pray or using fancy words, but more, God hears our prayers that are simply from the heart

Yet, people have confused simple prayers with safe, and I feel overwhelmed that our lukewarm prayers don’t show the love of the Father to this dying world, nor does it allow us to draw nearer to Him

Prayer shouldn’t be a chore, nor should prayer be a Christian’s chance for a pain-free or worry-free life. Also, prayer shouldn’t be recited over and over, like our favourite song, and we definitely shouldn’t pray just because we feel obliged too

Prayer needs to come deep within our soul’s because Jesus’ death was not for us to live mediocrely, but passionately for God. Jesus called for us to take up His cross and follow Him because as He showed us in Gethsemane, this life is about following the Father’s will

The most dangerous prayer we will ever pray is “Your will, not mine” – in other words, I will lay down everything to do the will of the Father

Imagine how our prayers could change, if we focused on what the Father desired for us and not our limited, finite ones

God is good. He chose us. He formed us, and He planned for us to partner with Him whilst here on this earth. If He is the God outside of space, time and matter, then why do we believe that our hopes and dreams could be better than what the Creator of the world wants for us?

Friends, it’s time to seek God passionately. It’s time to go after Him with everything in us…to seek His face, like Moses…to be His friend, like Abraham…and to have a heart after God’s, like David. These men changed the world, and it all started when they chose to follow God instead of their own desires

I dare you to pray Luke 22:42

“Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”

Luke 22:42
