Sleeping Away Your Purpose (#PowerandPurpose)

“'Why are you sleeping?' he asked them. 'Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.'” - Luke 22:46 (NIV)

Because we are sleeping, we are not praying. Because we are not praying, we are more prone to fail.  We are in the garden, sleeping, and are prone to give into all kinds of temptations: irrational fear, unnecessary anxiety, blatant satanic lies that my sins can outrun God’s grace, the delusional belief that we know better than God and can control our own lives, and feeding our flesh is more important than feeding my spirit. No more! Not today! It’s time for us to:

Get up!

Arise!

Wake up!

Pray!

Intercede!

Talk to God!

Be devoted to prayer!

Together let’s enter into this exhausting, powerful, and intimate spiritual habit with my Savior. He invites us to be alone with him and to be devoted to talking to him daily. Let’s awake and pray so we won’t fail him and others we love.
