Today’s Bible Verse 29th September 2022 MESSAGE
It has been confirmed that a major attitude of great men is their devotion to prayer and the Word of God. Great men of generational impact in Scripture were men given to the lifestyle of prayer and the Word.
For example, Prophet Samuel was a notable person who pleased God. God used him to raise great kings like David. And one secret of Samuel was his devotional lifestyle of prayer and the Word.
In 1 Samuel 12:23, he said, Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:
From the life of Prophet Samuel, we understand that prayerlessness is a sin, especially failure to pray for those who are our responsibilities. Samuel told the children of Israel that God forbid that he should sin against Him in ceasing to pray for them. He also said that he would teach them the good and right way. So, he was a man of prayer.
1 Samuel 3:21 says, And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh: for the Lord revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord. This confirms that Samuel was a man of prayer and the word.
Paul the apostle was another man of prayer and the Word. In Ephesians 6:18, he said,
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
In Acts 20:32, Paul said, And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
He was a man of prayer and the Word. Paul was dedicated to prayer and the Word of God.
