2ND EDITION OF WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL ENCOUNTER: “KEEP ON PRAYING; DON’T GIVE UP!”



KEEP
ON PRAYING: DON’T GIVE UP!
“And
being in an agony, He prayed more earnestly”. Luke 22:44
Bible Reference for
this devotional encounter: Luke 22:39-46

Have
you been burdened in your spirit and you are feeling depressed? Many times when
you feel this way, it is an indication that you need to pray. When Jesus was
burdened in His Spirit, He did not just go talking about it. He went on to
pray. When He was more in agony, He did not stop praying out of frustration but
rather He prayed more earnestly. You
need to follow this example that Jesus showed us.
The
natural way man reacts to situation such as Jesus found Himself is to lie on
bed gazing at the ceiling and to eventually sleep out of sorrow. This of course
leaves the matter unattended to. Whenever you begin to have a sense of sorrow
around you, it is time to pray. If the feeling intensifies, then don’t give up
but pray more for there is a spiritual war that needs to be fought and won.
When Jesus declared that He was feeling exceedingly sorrowful, He addressed the
issue through prayers and did not stop praying until He knew in His Spirit that
He had prayed through.
Pray
you will not be like the disciples who slept but like Jesus Who prayed.

QUOTES:
Always live in harmony even if there is breeze of agony
buffeting through your dwellings; always be in harmony even though there is no
hope of any patrimony. −NDJP
No matter how bad your conditions are, no matter the
degree of your sorrow; never give up, live with the hope that you will strive,
thrive, and survive every challenge to behold not just an ordinary tomorrow,
but a better and greater tomorrow! −NDJP

Remember
that praying amidst worries strengthens us lest we fall into temptation.
Worrying over that agony won’t even turn it into a harmony. Why not have time
to meditate, pray earnestly to God, let Him know how hurting what you are
passing through is. He created you, and He can understand you more than any
other person, even your own mother that bore you on her womb for good 9 months.
Our minds are imbued with doubts and thoughts of impossibilities whenever we
create rooms in our minds for otiose worries. If you really took time to peruse
the content of the Bible reference in the above devotional, you would have
understood that even Jesus Christ, The Begotten Son of God, was not an
exception to worry; but He really knew the right thing to do amidst worries, and
that He did. Just go down on your knees, and let your pleas to God Almighty culminate
with the same statement made by Christ at Mount Olives: “…but Your will be done”.
Praying more earnestly will compel the Angel of fortitude to embrace you and
strengthen you. Thanks, and be blessed as you put everything in God’s hands.
