Psalm 32:6 – “Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him.”
Prayer has always been an essential component of a believer’s life, but is often the most neglected. It’s easy to find time to pray when our schedules are relaxed, there’s no stress in our workplace and all is well in our world. But throw in some work deadlines, sickness in the family, or an unplanned trip and we’re left with no time for prayer.
In the verse above, the Psalmist remind us to offer a prayer to God at a time when He may be found. It’s easier to feel God’s presence and experience His favor in our good times. If we are faithful to spend time with God on a daily basis, it will help us build up the discipline of seeking God even when we don’t feel like it.
A time of prayer would ideally include praising God, reading from His Word, allowing Him to speak to our hearts, and presenting our requests to Him. But it should not be restricted to just a certain portion of our day. We should be diligent to seek God throughout the day, and share special moments with Him no matter where we are. This kind of intimate communication with God will build up our prayer life, and keep our faith strong when the storms of life threaten to drown us. Have you fallen back in your prayer life? Make a decision to get it back on track right this moment. It’ll be the best thing you can do today!
