He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Investing In Prayers

Rev 5:8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

When it comes to prayer, there are two distinct approaches: the reactive and the proactive. The reactive approach is commonly adopted by those who focus on the present circumstances and engage in prayer as a means of damage control. Their prayers are often a response to immediate events.

On the other hand, the proactive group takes a different stance. They view prayer as an investment, something to be practiced consistently in both good and bad times. They understand that their expressions of praise, gratitude, confession, and supplication are like precious deposits in heavenly golden bowls. These prayers are never forgotten and hold immense value.

This proactive approach to prayer proves especially beneficial during times of weakness and brokenness when one may find it difficult to pray. By consistently investing in prayer, individuals ensure that they have a reserve of spiritual strength to draw from when faced with challenges.

Therefore, it is crucial not to wait for trouble to arise before engaging in prayer. Adopting a proactive mindset allows one to cultivate a deep and meaningful connection with the divine, ensuring a constant source of strength and guidance throughout life’s journey.
