Watch and pray in weakness by Pastor W.F Kumuyi
HIGHER EVERYDAY DEVOTIONAL
WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 15, 2021
TOPIC: WATCH AND PRAY IN WEAKNESS
TEXT: MATTHEW 26:36-43
MEMORY VERSE: “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak”
Someone said, “God promises us in His Word that He hears every word that we pray to Him. Like a good parent, He is waiting, ready, and willing to listen to our worries, concerns and needs. Whether we are seeking forgiveness, strength, or healing, prayer provides the channel to communicate with God and receive supernatural strength and power.”
Dear Christian youth, like Peter in our text, do you confront challenges and temptations with carnal wisdom and strength? You will fail if you do.
Friend, what do you do when you are overwhelmed by challenges of life like, academic failure, financial scarcity, rejection, sickness or spiritual dryness? Do you pray like our Lord Jesus Christ in our Bible text?
Ray Fowler said, “If you fight weakness in your own strength, you will fail.”
As a Christian, pray always. While praying, you will receive encouragement, comfort, guidance and supernatural power to overcome satanic threats.
In times of weakness, pray. The Lord waits to hear your petition, and He will answer you and give you victory over the enemy of your soul.
QUOTE: In times of weakness, pray.
CHALLENGE: In your weakness, go to God in prayer.
PRAYER: Help me Lord to watch and pray in times of weakness.
