GIVE ATTENTION TO PRAYER AND THE WORD But we will continue to devote ourselves
steadfastly to prayer and the ministry of
the Word (Acts 6:4 AMPC).
When we talk about being equipped and positioned for a life of consistent victory and dominion, it’s about giving attention to the Word
of God, and prayer in its various dimensions and applications. In other words, prayer is of different kinds, and it’s important to know how to pray effectively by applying the different rules for different kinds of prayer.
Paul said, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit…” (Ephesians 6:18). So, you learn to pray ALWAYS. The Lord Jesus taught that, “…Men ought always to pray, and not to faint”
(Luke 18:1). 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, “Pray without ceasing.” All through the Scriptures, there’s such strong emphasis on prayer because of its profound blessings and benefits.
Also, God’s Word is of utmost importance in our lives; you must study, understand and live by God’s Word. Jesus said in John 8:31, “…If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed” (John 8:31).
In John 8:32, He said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” His Word is truth.
2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Joshua 1:8, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good
In Colossians 3:16, the Spirit, through the Apostle Paul, says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom….” Place a premium on the study of the Word of God and prayer. It’s what you need for a balanced spiritual life, where you triumph gloriously every day.
Dear Father, thank you for equipping me for the victorious life in Christ through the Word and prayer. As I make time praying in the spirit, pressing on for more knowledge of the Word, your glory is expressed
in and through me; I’m thoroughly nourished and fortified, and my profiting is unstoppable, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
