“Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, for the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in your prayers to God for me.” – Romans 15:30
One of the things I’m trying to cure myself of is casual prayer, prayer that is not intense, prayer that costs little.
Do you know the Bible calls prayer “wrestling”? Paul said, “…that you strive together with me in your prayers to God for me.”
Have you ever thought of prayer as striving, as wrestling? If you really get into intercession, you’re going to find out that the devil will fight you and oppose you. Prayer is work. I’d rather preach for an hour than to pray for a half an hour, so far as the labor that it takes for genuine prayer.
Ask yourself: How much genuine agonizing do I do in prayer?
