I READ: Matthew 26:36 – 41, 1 Thessalonians 5:17-19
Maybe we’ve asked ourselves, how long should we pray? The answer is we are to pray for as long as the Spirit guides us. Maybe we can start with a few minutes which then can increase the more we thirst for Him. One day maybe we can reach to an hour or even more. The Lord reminded His disciples to pray and be watchful for at least an hour. The goal is so that our spirit doesn’t fall asleep/die down. This way, the devil cannot lie to us because we are guarded. Peter was not able to pray with Jesus for one hour because he was too sleepy. At the end because his spirit was not on guard, the devil was able to lie to him and it resulted in him denying Jesus three times.
I DECLARE: Matthew 26:40 – Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?”.
I DO: What action will I take today after meditating the Word of God?
I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit.
