Phew! Life is hard. Prayer & bible study is hard when done out of duty, praise is difficult when done with an ulterior motive in mind.

I see that our lives should be prayer, praise word, all the time, every day and in every season, not because we want to be super-spiritual, but because of at least four things:

  1.  God deserves it.
  2.  We desperately need it.
  3.  It’s fab when we do it properly
  4. The enemy never, ever, ever, ever, ever, gives up fighting against us.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

“…with all prayer and petition pray with specific requests at all times on every occasion and in every season in the spirit and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition for all God’s people.”

“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in every circumstance and situation by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your specific requests known to God…”

“…and Jehosophat said, ‘Oh Lord God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven? And do you not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in your hand, there is no one able to take a stand against you.’

Jehosophat bowed with his face to the ground and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord worshiping him…

When they began singing and praising, the Lord set ambushes against them and they were struck down in defeat.”

(Eph 6:12, Eph 6:18, Phil 4:6, 2Chron 20:6, 2Chron 20:18, 2Chron 20:22 Amplified Version)
