Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice. (Psalms 55:17)
Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days. (Daniel 6:10)
We should use the examples of David and Daniel to model our prayer lives. By no means is this a limit to prayer, but it shows a consistent devotion to God throughout the day. A two minute prayer in the morning, 30 second prayers over food, and a two minute prayer at night does not cut it, though. Why do we treat the God of all creation like some second-class citizen? HE IS GOD! Sometimes we need to smack ourselves back into reality and realize we are mere dust outside of His providence. We need to pour ourselves out to him! There are so many competing demands and distractions that pull us away from God. We need to consistently shift the focus back to Him morning, noon, and night. Again, let this not limit you, rather let it serve as a starting point if your devotion or prayer life doesn’t look like this.
I pray that WE pray… Amen.
