Why should I pray hard PART 1
devotion by Sis. Bala Samson
Sunday, Jul 15, 2018

If the date of salvation is already fixed by God, then why should I pray hard?
 

Part 1


Genesis 18:32 Then he said, "Oh may the Lord not be angry, and I shall speak only this once; suppose ten are found there?" And He said, "I will not destroy it on account of the ten."  

I write this on a day of fasting and prayer, because the fire of God’s anointing is needed to percolate into the hearts of the people and bring understanding.  Stay tuned to His voice now.  The deception of the devil is to keep you away from God but my desire is to see you and your family saved. Amen.  It has taken me  more than 3 to 4 hours to write this devotion, after intense Bible study, which you would be reading in five minutes; however, I am determined in my commitment to expound the Gospel.

Someone told me, ‘Bala, we got to patiently wait, because only in God’s time the person will be saved.” Ah! I felt this got to be explained otherwise the devil is going to keep people lethargic and irresponsible in this very important subject of salvation. Salvation isn’t  magic, we got to be patient I agree, but not lazy in praying, so much so, when you slow down your intensity in praying, the devil grabs the person through calamities.   Suicides, heart attacks and accidents can overtake, if you are not intense in your prayer, do not take God for granted.  The devil twists the words of God and thereby today we have umpteen false doctrines; however, if you are a humble person reading the Word of God with a pure mind, God would surely reveal the truth to you.  I would give few incidents from the Bible and explain this to you:  

INTENSE PRAYER:  In Genesis 18, we see Abraham boldly stand in front of God and plead on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah, he prayed, ‘will you save the cities for the sake of the fifty righteous who are in it?’ and then slowly brings the number down to 10, God agrees to his request. This is the power of intercession prayer, but alas, not even 10 righteous are found in Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities were destroyed.  When you pray God listens!  The idea, ‘God is anyway going to save the person only in His time’, takes the onus away from intense praying, wrestling in prayer for the unsaved person, intense fasting and also thereby takes away the guilt of prayerlessness.  Spiritual lethargy finds excuses to take the tough route!  (Make a note of this statement and keep it in your bedroom, so that you wake up at 5 am in the morning and pray for your loved ones without fishing for excuses.) Be warned today, when you don’t pray enough and make changes in your life too then some souls will not be saved and deliverances may not take place. PRAYER, PRAYER…PRAYER  is the answer…..
