“Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
The only way to live a victorious life in this fallen world is to heed the instructions of Jesus and to watch and pray. Keep watching and keep praying, is the guiding principle for every child of God, every moment of the day and throughout our time on earth.
As Jesus prayed before the night of His crucifixion, He urged His disciples to watch and pray as well. The disciples were all exhausted and could not stay awake to pray. Jesus walked back towards them and found them sleeping when they should have been praying.
This is a time that we all need to be praying. We need to be praying in unity with the Holy Spirit. Our flesh is weak. We need the strength of the Holy Spirit of God to see us through. We do not need to be like the disciples and fall into a slumber.
Our nation is faced with some challenging issues. Some people are falling into a trap of the devil and fearing for the future. We need not to think at any moment, God is not in control. Jesus is on His throne and has everything under His authority. But what Jesus wants is His bride to be watching and praying. We are to pray in unity together and for one another.
This is a time for Believers to come together and strengthen one another’s faith. We are to encourage one another through prayer and sharing the Word of God. Don’t let this day of chaos blindside you and find you sleeping. This is a great time for us to shine the light of Jesus Christ into a dark and sinful world.
Lord, let us all be aware of what is happening in our world today. Hear our prayers and heal our land. Let me be a light of Jesus for someone to see.
