“And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:13
Many times we pray trying to impress someone in our group, but the early Christians weren’t trying to impress anybody. They were desperate. They prayed with intensity, fervency and specificity. They prayed to God, not to impress one another.
What have you learned about intense prayer? When you’re in a crisis, you learn how to pray with intensity, don’t you?
Many of us prayed this morning, but if I were to ask you, you couldn’t tell me with specificity what you prayed for. It was just a general prayer with no real intensity. I love Jeremiah 29:13, where God says, “And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart.” Sometimes we don’t feel like praying, so we say we’ll not pray.
Don’t feel like praying? Continue in prayer until you do feel like it. Pray—not only frequently but fervently. Friend, if there’s ever a time that you need to pray, it’s when you don’t feel like it.
