Living the crazy life that God has given me!

Prayer Traps

One of the things that I have realized over the last couple of months is that our prayer life is a great place to view our spiritual maturity.  How we spend our time praying allows us to see where we are in our relationship with Jesus.  I have noticed that when it comes to our prayer life for most followers of Jesus prayer is something that we do by reaction.  When really it should be something that we do proactively.  Instead of waiting for life to change our prayer life why not have our prayer life change our life.  I love the Aramaic word for prayer it is slotha it means to set a trap. When a hunter sets a trap it is in the expectancy that something is going to get caught in the trap.  When you spend time in prayer, do you expect your prayers to make a difference?  Do you expect God to do something with them?  This week I challenge you to pray proactively and to pray with the expectancy that God will work with in your prayer life.

    This is an excellent devotion, Scott, and a vital truth. Prayer is the work and one of the greatest spiritual weapons we have to be proactive. I appreciated your zeroing in on prayer. The Lord bless you and your family as you continue seeking His direction, power and strength for your church plant. In Christ, Mary
