“None of us lives to himself alone.” – Romans 14:7
People always find the time to do the things they want to do, but are quick to find excuses for not doing the things they don’t want to do. This happens in our spiritual life.
If you are making excuses as to why you can’t pray or spend time with God, ask yourself why you are making these excuses. Why is your prayer life without power? Why has your faith become a burden instead of an inspiration of hope and faith?
This happens when you no longer reach out to God in prayer, or if you only ever express your personal desires. True prayer broadens your spiritual and intellectual horizons, and makes your relationship with the Saviour more profound.
O Lord, please help me to develop a meaningful and powerful prayer life under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
