A lesson on prayer from Luke

21:03:00 Karen Li 0 Comments


One of my new years resolutions was to improve my prayer life. And 7 months on, it's still a point I struggle with. For me, reading the bible everyday is easy (after a long period of God's grace just motivating me to read) but prayer is a lot harder. Sure I pray before meals, I pray before I sleep, when I wake up, there is a quick prayer when I brush my teeth. But I have found it hard to get that really good quality one-on-one time with God on my knees.

As I was preparing for this week's bible study (Luke 4: 31-44), I stumbled on this blogpost. http://activerain.com/blogsview/1535820/luke-4-31-44-a-bible-study-devotion-jesus-was-too-busy-to-pray-too-

Jesus had a really busy day, he was preaching, healing, getting rid of demons, at the end of the day people still bought the sick to him. Instead of just zoning out by watching tv, or logging onto facebook or even sleeping in Jesus took the time to get on his knees and talk to his dad in heaven. The importance of prayer!
