Praying for prayer

What does it mean to "pray for prayer?"

Some people use prayer lists, some don't. Some like to "pray the news." Others just pray for whatever or whoever comes into their head, as the Spirit leads them. Some are "governmental intercessors" who feel called to pray for those in leadership. But with all the praying we do for different things, I think it's also important that we pray for God to make us a praying people and raise up more works of prayer in our State. We can pray for prayer!

Remember that a prayerless people seems to be the only thing in Scripture that can actually astonish God.

Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him. (Isa. 59:15-16)

Let's pray for prayer this coming week by asking God for the "spirit of grace and intercession" to fall upon Connecticut. I believe that God can cause us to be a praying people once again. Let faith arise in your heart that God can make a change - not just in your family, but in your town and your State!

A simple thought on prayer and consistency from Corrie ten Boom:

"Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees."
