神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

双语灵修丨葛培理布道团:花时间来祷告​(2019.08.09)

你们若向父求什么,他必因我的名赐给你们。约16:23

Whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you. John 16:23

圣经中记载的最奇妙的一件事,就是耶稣用了很多的时间来祷告。耶稣一生只有三年时间在地上作工,但是他从来没有因为自己的忙碌而忽略了恒切的祷告。每次作工前,他记得祷告祈求为先(约6:11);(即便没有事工)他的祷告同样是一种坚持:没有在哪一天的开始和结束,他没有向天父神敞开心扉。

相比之下,我们的祷告,是多么仓促、不细心!早晨起来,我们也许还知道背诵几句经文,念念有词,然后一整天跟神“不见”,到晚上睡觉前,再急忙应付几句,那不是耶稣教导我们的祷告。耶稣的祷告是花时间的,耐心的,真心的,甚至不断重复的。经上记载,耶稣是整晚恳切祷告(太2636-44)。有谁还会比主耶稣更忙碌呢?但是主从来没有因忙碌而停止祷告。

在你的日程中,祷告是不是第一位的?

One of the most amazing things in all the scriptures is how much time Jesus spent in prayer. He had only three years of public ministry, yet He was never too hurried to spend hours in prayer. He prayed before every difficult task confronting Him. He prayed with regularity –not a day began or closed in which He did not unfold His soul before His Father.

How quickly and carelessly, by contrast, we pray. Snatches of memorized verse are hastily spoken in the mornings; then we say good-bye to God for the rest of the day, until we say good-bye to God for the rest of the say, until we rush through a few closing petitions at night.

This is not the prayer program that Jesus outlined. Jesus pleaded long and repeatedly. It is recorded that He spent entire nights in fervent appeal. No one could have been busier-but He was never too busy for prayer.

What keep you from making prayer a priority in your schedule?
