The Benefit of Prayer

In Matthew 6:9-10, Jesus says to pray this way, “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Your Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” We are called to help bring the kingdom of heaven on earth. However, we can't do it on our own. We need to ask the Father to help us make it happen. Of the many prescribed ways to see the kingdom manifest on earth, prayer was intended to be primary.

Once, one of my children was trying to vacuum the family room to bless their momma.  They were having a hard go of it because the room was large and vacuum cleaner was bigger than they were.  It wasn’t until they requested help from dad – did the job get done better and faster.

Most of the jobs God gives us are larger than us and the implements required to perform the task are not naturally manageable. The best administration, preaching, giving and witnessing are all important to bringing the God's kingdom to earth, but they can never substitute for requesting help from the Father to expedite the process. If we ask, He will always help us do His will better and faster. Live right, live well…

Identified By More Than Just Words

In 1 John 2:6 – John said this, “anyone who says he abides in Him ought to himself walk in the same manner as he walked.”  In this passage John is referring to Jesus.  When I was in high school our school sponsored a student parent event.  Even though my school was predominately White, we had a good mix of African American and international students.

One student came up to me, who had never met my family and said “I saw your dad tonight.” I asked, “How did you know it was my dad?” He said, “Well, I saw him walk and I realized that the only person I had ever seen walk like that was you so I figured it had to be your dad.” It should be no surprise that I walk in the same manner as the one who created me.

Spiritually, it’s important to understand that we need to be identified with our God by more than just our words. Folks ought to be able to identify our family heritage by the way we walk. Live right, live well…
