He who lives without prayer – he who lives with little prayer – he who seldom reads the Word – he who seldom looks up to heaven for a fresh influence from on high – he will be the man whose heart will become dry and barren. – Charles Spurgeon
“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” James 4:8
I am convinced that the reason a lot of people give up on prayer is because they get bogged down mentally when they try to pray. They try to pray, but the thoughts just won’t come. They can’t think of what they need to be praying about. They just give up, and then afterward they feel really dissatisfied because they think they have failed. – From Ken Raggio’s Book:
“Praying On Purpose, Praying For Results”
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” – Matthew 6:33
When we seek the kingdom of God, having a mind set on Heavenly thoughts (Col 3:2) soon discover that this World is not worth being held too. We begin to pay more attention to our surroundings; People who are hurting and in need of Jesus. We begin to look through His eyes.
