A Weekend Of Kneeling

The apostle Paul would write many times in his epistles about the importance of prayer. He encouraged his readers to pray always, to pray without ceasing and to pray for everything. Prayer had been such an important part of his life that he wanted to share that knowledge and comfort as often and as effectually as he could.

After spending a week with the disciples Tyre, the people there saw them off with a parting prayer time. How wonderful the sight must have been as these men of God and their families knelt in prayer in the sand by the sea. Prayers went up as they all bowed down on their knees.

And when we had accomplished those days, we departed and went our way; and they all brought us on our way, with wives and children, till we were out of the city: and we kneeled down on the shore, and prayed. Acts 21:5

Make this a weekend of kneeling. Spend as much time in prayer about the issues in your life as you do talking about them and worrying about them. Paul's advice so many centuries ago stands true today: pray in all places about all things.

As you fall on your knees, thank God for the blessings in your life, tell Him of your heartaches and allow Him to speak to your quiet, humble heart. You're too busy not to pray, and spending time before the throne of grace will provide you with the strength, peace and joy you'll need to not only survive but thrive in the days to come.
