MORNINGTIME 2409
 
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  WHO WILL HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED, AND TO COME UNTO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. 1 Timothy 2:1-4. This is telling us to pray for all our neighbors, both saved and unsaved, because the unsaved are on their way to Hell, and the saved can always grow even more in CHRISTLIKENESS. Don't worry, that's only seven and a half Billion people. You say that's an impossible thing to do? OK, just pray for one person, then another, then another, and so on until the Lord tells you to stop. Still too many? OK, just tell one person today about Christ and tonight pray for him. Tomorrow tell another, and tomorrow night pray for them both, and so on. After a year you'll have a list of 365 people you have PERSONALLY talked to, one on one, and prayed for. Some will come to Christ, most won't, all you have to do is stay Obedient to Pray for those the Lord Himself asks you to pray for. Remember, we're supposed to be a "praying" people. If we won't pray for them, who will? I'll answer my own question, ALL THE OTHER RELIGIONS OUT THERE WILL BE GLAD TO PREY FOR THEM. Just curious, what would your life be like if ONLY your Prayer Time, doubled? Jesus is our example, and how many all-night prayer vigils did He have? Even if you can count them on one hand, can you at least match that number of all-night prayer times? I too fall short in this area. But the days are coming when we ALL, even as an underground church, WILL have such a Love and Compassion for our fellow lost man that pulling some all-night prayer meetings will be like child's play. We'll wonder why it took so long to get there. AND WE WILL GET THERE, that's all part of Loving and Praying for each other that we ALL will, Be Blessed.
