I want you to EAT every day this week!
If you were unable to attend service on Sunday, I preached a message regarding prayer. At the end of my message I challenged the entire church to EAT together at either 6:48 AM or 6:48 PM.
E.A.T. stands for
I’m challenging you to E.A.T. every day this week either in the morning or in the evening. I would like all of us to spend time praying to our Father in Heaven for at least 5 minutes. Take a few minutes exalting God, telling Him how awesome He is and that there is no one else like Him. Then begin to ask God for things that are on your heart. Tell Him what you need. Finally spend time thanking Him for being an amazing heavenly Father! I guarantee that God will be pleased and He will smile on you!
Why 6:48? Well, James 4:8 says this,
“Come close to God, and God will come close to you.”
It’s a promise. If you draw near to God He will draw near to you. It’s that simple.
Would you join us? In order to help you remember, take out your cell phone right now and set an alarm at either one of those times. Then join with us in seeking God’s face. It will be the best part of your day!!
One of my favorite preachers, Charles Spurgeon had this to say about prayer:
God knows we have much need of prayer. So deep are our necessities, that until we are in heaven we must not cease to pray…
A prayerless soul is a Christless soul.
Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honor of a Christian.
If you are a child of God, you will seek thy Father’s face, and live in the Father’s love. Pray that this year you may be holy, humble, zealous, and patient; have closer communion with Christ, and enter more often in the banqueting-house of his love.
Pray that you may be an example and a blessing to others, and that you may live more to the glory of your Master. AMEN!
