So You Can Pray

As followers of Jesus, we need to remember that Jesus will return someday and it could be soon. Peter told his readers that the end was coming. Since Jesus was coming back, they needed to be sober minded and alert. Peter wrote:

The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Р1 Peter 4:7 (NIV)

We have to be aware and alert of what is going on around us so that we can pray. We cannot be given over to drunkenness or substances that will dull our senses. We need to have sober minds. We need to be alert to the schemes and activities of the enemy. He is still seeking to destroy the church. We need to be watchful and faithful in prayer. Prayer offered in faith can move mountains. Don’t ever give up on prayer! If you’re not praying, start! If you are praying, keep praying. God hears and answers our prayers according to His will. Be sober minded so you can understand and discern His will better. After you have prayed, pray some more because after all, the end is near.
