[ The Glory Unveiled]
And he spake a parable unto them to the end that they ought always to pray, and not to faint; ( Luke 18 :1)
Jesus told His disciples a parable to illustrate the need for persistent prayer. The central message of the parable–found in verses 2 to 5 of the same chapter–is that we ought to pray always. Without consistent prayer, there is no relationship between heaven and earth; without prayer, there is no legal obligation from Heaven to operate in the earth realm. The more you’re in communication with anyone, the shorter the distance between you. Communication links two people and two realities or environments. Likewise, in continuous prayer, there is the gradual establishment of a relationship. Jesus was consistently in communication with heaven so much that Heaven was drawn down into His vicinity; He literally carried heaven around. He drag the realities of Heaven into the earth realm as a result of his prayer life. Consistence with God in prayer is the mark of true relationship with God. We ought to pray and not be tired.
Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, energize my innerman for a consistent prayer life. Empower me to resist the yearnings of my flesh that hinder my prayers.
