Weekly Prayers

Dear Crosspointers,

It is an undeniable fact that prayer is a vital aspect of our Christians’ lives;  however, sadly, most Christians “know” more about prayer than they ever “practice” it.   Why people don’t pray? And who knows exactly how much time we devote to prayer? Who cares?   But God does.

As I recalled, I had read an article from a BLOG.   The author suspects that most of us don’t pray because of the following:

  • We don’t think we have time.
  • We don’t think it is important.
  • We don’t believe that it makes any difference.

The truth is:   we do have time, prayer is necessary, and prayer does make a difference.   If you set aside time, which is “often” and regular, and withdraw to a quiet place, the presence of God can be found in the midst of your busyness.  

How’s your prayer life?  Don’t you realize that breathing is to our physical lives, prayer is to our spiritual lives?

I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to  “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

親愛的匯點人:

禱告是我們基督徒生活的一個重要方面,這是不可否認的事實; 然而, 遺憾的是,大多數基督徒 「認識」禱告而不是 「實踐」 它。 為什麼人們不祈禱?而且,  誰知道我們投入多少時間禱告? 誰在乎? 但上帝知道, 他在乎。

我曾閱讀過 在一個 BLOG 的一篇文章。 作者懷疑大多數人會因為以下的原因不常祈禱:

  • 我們認為沒有時間。
  • 我們認為這不重要。
  • 我們認為沒有任何幫助。

事實的是:我們確實有時間,禱告是必要的,禱告確實有幫助。 如果你留出一段獨處時間 (經常地和有規律地),並撤回到一個安靜的地方,就算在你忙碌的時候也可以經歷到上帝的同在。

你的禱告生活怎麼樣? 難道你沒有意識到呼吸是對我們的肉體生命,祈禱是對我們的屬靈生命嗎?

我以神的慈悲勸你們,主內的弟兄姐妹,要「不住地禱告」”(帖撒羅尼迦前書 5:17)。
