How is Your Prayer Life?

psalm 61

Some of you may be struggling with your prayer life on many levels, but be thankful for all the godly examples of prayer that are to be found in the Scriptures. Sometimes, we need to pattern ourselves after other great men and one such person is King David. What made David great was not his warrior tactics, his position or his name. It was his prayer life.

Whenever David found himself in a tight spot, he instinctively turned to God in prayer. Prayer is the natural breath of the believer. It enables you to accomplish what you cannot accomplish by yourself.

David wrote Psalm 61 when he was forced to escape during the days of Absalom’s rebellion or after he narrowly escaped one of Saul’s efforts to kill him while hiding in the desert.

First, prayer enables you to reach farther (v.2). Although he was far from home, he was not away from God. No matter where you are, God never abandons us. God’s all-surpassing strength is always with us. At the same time, we can reach out through prayer and touch the lives of family, friends and missionaries too.

Second, prayer enables you to go higher (v.2). David was overwhelmed and wrapped in gloom. When he prayed, God lifted him up and put him on a high rock, in a tower. Prayer puts you on the mountaintop and enables you to get a clear perspective on your situation.

Thirdly, prayer enables you to come closer and to live fuller (vv. 4-7). We know that it’s not the length of life but the depth of our life that counts. Prayer puts depth into our life. We depend on Christ for the fullness of our life instead on worldly materials or entertainments.

Finally, prayer enables you to be happier (v. 8). Prayer and praise always go together. David starts crying and ends up praising. He starts out praying and ends up rejoicing. Spend time with the Lord in prayer. It will change your life.

Evaluate your praying. Is it accomplishing in your life what it accomplished in David’s? If not, spend more time in prayer and determine to experience its accomplishment in your life.

Of Valentine’s Day, Ash Wednesday, and Lent

SSP Prayer Bulletin Reflections
February 11, 2015

As we move into the second month of 2015, the red and green of Christmas transition into the black and purple of Ash Wednesday and Lent, and the red or pink of Valentine’s Day. This year, as often times occurs, Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day fall very close to one another.

I suppose it might sound like I’m putting equal weight on the celebration of Valentine’s Day and our observance of Lent. In fact, I’ve wondered if there is a way that the two special days might complement one another.

Though it has some secular association, actually I think Valentine’s Day can offer a great opportunity to encourage the affirming of relationships with our loved ones. It’s not only a day in which love for a special person is expressed through gifts of cards, flowers, chocolates and a meal shared with each other.

On the other hand, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season of preparation for Holy Week and Easter. It encourages Christians to examine themselves, repent of their sins and be renewed in the forgiveness of sins through the crucified and risen Christ. In the typical Ash Wednesday observance, worshippers are invited to receive the imposition of ashes upon their foreheads in the shape of a cross. Ashes have long been an outward sign of repentance, and, of course, the cross is a beacon of hope for believers through the forgiveness of sins.

So, can Valentine’s Day, Ash Wednesday and Lent coexist? Is it possible they can even complement one another? The pessimist in us would normally ask “How can the indulgence of Valentine’s Day offer anything to the penitence and denial of Lent and Ash Wednesday?”

There is however, one obvious and common denominator: Love.

On Valentine’s Day, we celebrate the love we share in those special relationships with our loved ones. Ash Wednesday and Lent point us to the greatest act of love, when Jesus Christ gave up His life on the cross that we might be forgiven and live. His victory over sin and death is revealed mightily on Easter.

Whether you choose to celebrate Lent, Ash Wednesday, Valentine’s Day or all three, you can surely celebrate the gift of love.

Take a moment and tell your love ones you love them. Most importantly, take a moment to tell the Lord how much you love Him and give thanks to God for the greatest gift of love in his Son, Jesus Christ, by loving others as He loved you.
