Will You Take Up This Mantle to Fulfill Christ's Prayer?

Beginning all things in prayer is a foundational discipline of the Christian life. (Pixabay)
Jesus began all things with prayer and desires that we follow His example.

The magnificent opportunity looms before us—our lives can be dramatically changed by the power of Jesus Christ; being conformed to His image and transformed by the renewing of our minds (Rom. 8:29; 12:1-2). We can experience the victorious Christian life for ourselves and see significance to be realized—we can bring glory to God and build His kingdom. All of this begins with and is maintained by prayer.

Understanding this, Jesus gave us a visible, audible and miraculous example of the importance of prayer. At the very beginning He began with prayer. Jesus prayed while He was being baptized. Then He immediately went to the desert for 40 days of fasting, which was obviously accompanied by prayer. Jesus prayed about all things as He navigated life, and he stole away often to pray and listen to the Father. Prayer is how He began His public life and how He wants us to begin all things in our lives.

It didn't matter if the issue at hand was profound or an everyday incident—Jesus began all things with prayer.

Beginning all things in prayer is a foundational discipline of the Christian life. The times of praying in stillness and solitude are when God reaches into our minds, emotions and wills, the deepest places of our souls. In the quiet stillness of prayer we free ourselves from the constant distractions of the world and the nagging whispers of our past, dysfunctions and sins. Beginning all things with in prayer during the day and having close and continual fellowship with God will leave its mark on us.

As we follow our Lord by beginning everything in prayer, we position ourselves to receive the glorious benefits that flow from this way of living. read more
