How Is Your Prayer Life?
Psalm 55:16-17 (KJV) As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
David shares about his prayer life. The Bible tells us that David is a man after God’s own heart two times, 1st Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22. This report does not mean that the life David lives on this earth is perfect. However, his life does reveal to us how earnestly David sought God.
In other words, David had a sincere prayer life often recorded as heartfelt prayers lifted up to God. This thought about his prayer time is true, both in great distress and in mountains of joy. For example, the book of Psalms, among many other scriptural examples, is overflowing with Davidic Psalms containing many tears, trials, and triumphs in David’s life.
Knowing these examples of humble prayer should lead each of us to examine our own prayer life. Prayer is direct communication with God. Each of us must practice a healthy prayer life. Please take note that David communed with God morning, noon, and night. Perhaps we can all use a reminder to make our personal communion with God of greater importance, just as David records.
David’s life is one of many biblical examples of a great prayer life. Another is Hannah’s heartfelt prayer, and indeed Jesus Christ’s prayer to His Father in the Garden of Gethsemane was so intense he sweat drops of blood. How passionate is your prayer life as you sojourn in this wicked world?
