Have you ever asked yourself: “I wonder whether I will eat today”? Probably not. Most daily things such as eating, brushing your teeth or getting dressed we do not even question. We know it is important, so we do it. After all, no one wants to see us running around naked, hungry and with a bad breath.
Then why do we often not get dressed spiritually? We do not eat a regular spiritual meal. We do not clean spiritually. The most important thing you can do to keep yourself healthy and fed, spiritually, is to pray. To spend time with God and in his word. Jesus taught it to us as follows:
Luke 11:2 He said to them, “When you pray, say…”
When you pray. Not if you pray, when you feel like praying or when you preach. “When you pray”…
When you pray is a moment. When you pray is an opportunity. When you pray is a choice. When you pray is a habit. When you pray is Why you pray.
Because you need it.
