Too Busy to Pray?

Mon, 06/03/2013 - 7:00pm -- Rob

Busyness.  For some, it's a way of life.  For others, it's a crutch.  For others still, it's an addiction.  But whichever category you may find yourself in, you either are currently experiencing it, or have experienced it in times past.

Who was more busy than Jesus?

His days were filled with travel, teaching His disciples, speaking to crowds, giving private interviews, healing, and more!  Yet He found time to pray.

Why did He pray, and why was it necessary?

Jesus was a real man.  He knew He needed to draw on the power and resources of His almighty Father in order to accomplish everything He did.  To Jesus, prayer was like the air He breathed; the atmosphere in which He lived.

In every situation and circumstance; while experiencing joy, rejection, opposition, trial, and even while dying on the cross, He prayed.

He was the busiest man in the world (doing the most important work any man could do).  Yet, He was never too busy to pray.

What about you?  Are you too busy to pray?  Too busy to listen for God's voice and direction in your decisions?

If busyness is hindering your ability to pray, consider your ways (Haggai 1:7), then begin to seek your almighty Father to help you accomplish everything you do!

Jesus wasn't too busy to pray, but knew His strength depended upon His Father.  Does your strength depend on Him too?
