“…then he spoke a parable unto them saying men always ought to pray and not loose heart…” Luke 18:1 (NKJV)

     Have you ever thought of the reason why we are always encouraged to pray always? Have you ever bothered to find out why prayer is important in our lives? Well, if you haven’t, I will be sharing with you one major reason why prayer is important in our lives. Apart from the fact that it is a major aspect of our fellowship with God, it is an investment for tomorrow. It might not look so, but that is what it is. Whether you like it or not, the prayers you offered today, is an investment for your future. Some people have actually had issues with praying. They say things like “must we pray all the time? Must we stay so long in prayers? Now, they ask all these questions because they are trying to negate the importance of prayers but the truth remains that prayer is as important as breathing. It plays a major role in our day to day activities, well-being and protection. You must understand that the devil who is our adversary is running rampage looking for whom to destroy and bring low. The only people he will be able to succeed in bringing low are the people who are not prayerful. They are not on guard hence the devil has an access to them. But the man who is prayerful, no matter what the devil does, his prayers will always be a weapon against the whirls of the devil.

Therefore, it is important that you understand this and take your prayer life seriously. There is no room for laziness. Or lousiness. Paul the apostle said, “…I desire therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting…”1 Timothy 2:8 (NKJV) In Ephesians 6:17, he also says, “…take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance…” Meaning, that prayer is not to be taken lightly. When you pray, you establish the present and secure the future. So get to work, don’t wait until you feel like it before you pray, don’t wait until the next time you are in church before you pray. Pray at all times and you will not be a prey. Praise God!


When you pray, you establish the present and secure the future!


The spirit of prayer is at work in me, therefore the zeal and the willingness to pray at all times, is working in me and causing me pray like never before. I declare that as I pray often, I am protected and making progress in all areas of my life in the name of Jesus. Amen!
