Pray Attention Church!


Good praying often requires preparation.  For example, Jesus commanded His followers with the words “watch and pray.”

Also, Paul challenged all believers when he wrote, under the Holy Spirit’s influence, “continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.” (Col. 4:2)

Apparently, watching has a vital role in our prayer activities!

The Greek word for “watch” is “gregoreo”, which means, basically, “to be awake or vigilant.”   Webster’s defines “watch” as “keeping awake in order to guard” . . . or, “to be on the alert.”

In boot camp, one of my D.I.s always used the phrase, “Be aware of what’s goin’ on!”

The wise intercessor is aware of the needs around him, and the needs of the world (he is well informed), and he is aware of the Spirit’s promptings, as the Spirit always knows the Father’s will.   Listen for local, national, and world news, with wisdom.   Read about mission activities and needs.   Be ready to pray with wisdom and insight . . . always asking the Spirit to guide you.

Church . . . Pray Attention . . . Pray On!
