Vital signs- Friday, May 26th, 2023

Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David, Elijah, and other men of God had altars where they prayed.

People, like the Israelites, had tabernacles and eventually temples where they prayed. Jesus prayed in the wilderness, on a mountain, in a garden, or in any solitary place.

We are told to “go into our room” to pray. Scripture also requires us to gather with other believers and pray. We also see the Bible say that the church is the house of prayer. The book of Matthew tells us to pray with others for our prayers to be answered. Acts also show examples of the early church praying together. This means that our prayers should be both, private and public.

The second principle we find in Matthew 6:6 is the importance of finding a place of prayer. That place may change from time to time, you do not have to always pray in the same place. Wherever you decide to pray: in your room, closet, basement, attic, or any place, remember it is sacred and dedicated to your meeting with God.

Even if you have an isolated place where you and God meet regularly, I want to challenge you to find a local church where you can pray with other believers. I encourage you to practice both, pray in private by yourself and in public with a community of believers. This is important for your growth and encouragement in moments when trials of our faith come.

“But the news about Him was spreading even farther, and large crowds were gathering to hear Him and to be healed of their sicknesses. But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭5‬:‭15‬-‭16‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

Let's Pray:

Lord God, I dedicate this place to meeting with you privately, please guide me to find a community of believers to pray with, in the name of Jesus, amen.

Team Wade loves you and is praying for you ❤️👊
