God expects every Christian to daily communicate with Him. Neglect of prayer shows God that you do not value or care about your relationship with Him. When you choose to exclude God from your life, you cut yourself off, from the source of many blessings. Prayerlessness is an offense, and a sin against God. You make time for yourself, your friends, your job, for others, and for relaxation and entertainment. Is communicating with God your top priority? Do you give to Him your time, attention, and your talents?
Prayerlessness shows that your life is still being primarily controlled by your flesh, and not by God’s Spirit. You have not yet yielded control of all areas of your life to God. He desires you to draw near Him with a pure and contrite heart in humble submission. Time spent in intimacy with God will build up your spiritual life. The lack of time spent with God will cause you to lack a powerful spiritual life. How can The Church do its job of winning the lost, when church members are not walking in daily intimacy with God?
You must daily partake of quality time spent in intimacy with God, to be renewed and empowered, so you can properly face each day that lies before you. “…the inward man is renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16. “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks…Quench not the Spirit.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-19. “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7. A continual, abiding faith in Jesus is required. God is calling you to repent, so you can be restored back to Him, and be pardoned. He is looking for you to be humble, yielded and have a pure heart that is free from sin. Faith is continual believing, being demonstrated by your words, thoughts, and actions. Repentance is to forsake your own ways, and evil thoughts, and to return to The Lord. “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7. Like the Prodigal Son, you are to return back to God, leaving all your sinful ways behind, and God will receive you back to Himself.
Spend time daily in intimacy with God, receiving strength to walk out your salvation. “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:20-23. Believe on Jesus, fully relying on Him alone. “…the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20. Look to Jesus, not yourself, and maintain intimacy. Live in His Presence, Rejoice in His Love, and Rest in Him.
