WNOP Prayer Connect

Join us in praying for the following world needs this week:

Visit Our Website:

There are many who attend church, pay tithes, teach Sunday school, sing in the choir, worship, and tell others they know about Jesus, yet for the most part they are powerless because they do not pray. There are 168 hours in a week. You are in church roughly six hours of that time. My question to you today is what are you doing in the other 97% of your week? 
There are some things in life I can't do if certain things are missing. I can't mail a letter without a stamp. I can't use an ATM machine without a pin number. I can't drive my car without the key. Equally, there are some things you will never be able to do in your walk with God if you don't consistently pray.

Without prayer you will never be able to truly walk in the Spirit or know you are perfectly in God's will. Without prayer you won't hear God's voice and or have His power working in your life.
Psalm 91:1 says, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."  Psalm 91:1 has probably the most protective, broad-scope promises found in Scripture.  It says if you and I will take care as to where we place ourselves, God will release 18 divine protections.  But it is all conditional on the first verse. The protections and benefits flow from a decision of placement.

Each of us have a public relationship with God, and that is good. But there is something deeper when we lock ourselves away in a private place with the Lord. It is there that you don't have to be a pastor, a youth leader, a mom, or dad -  you just get to be God's child.

Where have you placed yourself of late? Where are your spending the other 97% of your time? Be encouraged! A great thing about prayer is you are ONE CHOICE away from doing things differently.

Take time this week to lock yourself away in a secret place with God. His Word promises He will meet you there. When you become a faithful person of prayer God will begin using you in a much greater way.

Have a blessed week.
