Praying every day is a must for all Christians because in several verses in the bible, we are warned to pray in the spirit all the time. As for how long your prayers should is a matter of individual preference. Some people can pray for more than 9 hours without being tired while other feel that praying that long is not necessary. However in the bible it is said that Jesus prayed for one hour when he went to the mountain to pray. An average of an hour two times per day is a good average.
When we pray, we talk to God and we combine it with reading the bible we hear from God. We should pray every day in the spirit and in other tongues. Praying and reading of the bible must go together. When we pray we communion with God and we empty our minds to him. Whenever you are asking from God, should pray to see it happen. Whether you are believing God for a car, healing or a husband; pray about it. The bible says in mark 11:24 that “that whatever we desire and we pray for, believe that you have received it and you shall have it.” It is therefore important that we should have complete confidence in God that he has answered our prayers after praying even before we see manifestation of those things in our lives.
Welcome to my blog.
Blogging is something I have always wanted to do and thank God I took the step today to start this blog. Many people would obviously wonder why the name Christ2live? This name denotes a Christian blog and recounts a collection of excepts about my Christian life.
Okay, so,I start asking myself what would be my first post? Today I would talk about the weapons of our warfare. My scriptural reference is from
2 Corinthians 10:4-5
For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
I would be talking about the weapons we have for our warfare. For those of you who are not aware, as soon as you give your life to Christ, you are in warfare with forces of darkness who would want to make you do wrong or bring sickness and disease on your body. These principalities are seeking to overthrow our position in Christ and they would continue in their attempts until we go back to Christ. The weapons we have at our disposal are:
- The name of Jesus
- The blood of Jesus
- Praises and worship
- Our attitude
- Prayers and fasting
I would develop these points in my next post.
