Some of the pastors present confessed they had struggled with the lack of faith and prayer. Reading that really broke my heart! Any of us who have been in ministry for any length of time understand how easy it is to fall into that TRAP!
But I have learned a great lesson…
When you “feel” to beat up, put down or left down to pray. Listen carefully…the physical is opposite from the spiritual. When our physical bodies get hungry we eat, and then we aren’t hungry anymore. However, in our spiritual lives, when we aren’t hungry, we must… force ourselves to eat, and eat with humility and desperation!
Eating and indulging in the Word
and prayer makes us hunger for more! Touching the “hem” means we have come full circle realizing that is our only hope for enduring and overcoming the hardship!
If you aren’t hungry for the Word and prayer…
Eat hardily my friend, because in doing so, your breakthrough will draw near, even at the door!
Have you ever had a time in your life when you felt you didn’t even have the strength to pray???
