Have you all ever set your alarm early just so you can get up and pray? I'm kind of a morning person, early to bed and early to rise...sooooo by 7 am I've all ready been up for a few hours!!! bUUUUUUT back in the day, before I was an early riser, I would have to set an alarm to get up early for prayer!!!
Weeeeeeeeelllllll...I would like you all to meet my little prayer alarm!!!
YES, a little human prayer alarm!!!
One day when he was over I was in the other room doing something and he was playing, when he comes to me, PRAY Mary??? Now, I had already prayed that day so I was thinking I was good for the moment, so I was like, Oh sure Ray, if you wanna pray, go pray! He looks at me, eyebrows raised and the most serious look on his face and says, "MARY PRAY, NOW!!!" I was like, YES SIR!!!! AHAHAHAAHAHAAAA!!! And we went had us a prayer meeting!!! Because, HEY, you can never pray TOO MUCH and WHEN is ever requested on the job to pray??? I mean, seriously, how cool is that???
Buuuuuut it never fails when he comes over, he ALWAYS gets in a prayer session. There have been days where I really did FORGET to pray that day, but because of my little prayer alarm, WE GOT IN OUR PRAYER time!!! It's like there's just a little ticker in him that goes off and lets him know, IT'S TIME!!! If we could all strive and pray for God to put that same ticker in us, that a spiritual alarm goes off inside of us everyday, reminding us to pray!!! It's something I ask God to put inside of me!!!
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut...in case your spiritual ticker inside doesn't go off...annnnnnnd you don't have a human prayer alarm...go ahead and set that PHYSICAL ONE...IT'S TIME TO PRAY!!!
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-7)
