In the midst of our day to day activities and the hustle and bustle of life, we sometimes neglect properly nourishing our bodies. We grab coffee on the go to jump start our sleep-deprived selves. Or we eat empty fast-food calories for lunch on the run. And then we eat an overly-processed dinner (too late at night). Traditionally, dinner-time has been the focal point of family fellowship and bonding. The family spends quality (not necessarily quantity) time with one another at this special point of the day. Dining adequately can sometimes be difficult. Whether you break bread with others, or with you, yourself, and Yahweh, settling oneself is important during this end-of-day activity. When we pray, do we merely take a coffee shot of Jesus, and keep it moving? Perhaps, when we pray, we make haste to grab up some luncheon word to-go, but not properly digest it. Or, do we ingest a proper dinner fellowship with the Lord during prayer? Scripture exhorts believers to "open your mouth and taste; open your eyes and see—how good God is. Blessed are you who run to Him." (Psalms 34: 8 MSG). Let's make a sincere effort to have dinner with Jesus in prayer and be qualitatively purposeful in that. As Mark 11: 23-25a declares, “I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you'll get God's everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it's not all asking..."(The Message Bible). I'm sure the Lord appreciates the dinner prayers you are setting before Him on the table! Dinner is served all day at IHOP! Take a spiritual trip there and listen to the Lord say, "Hey, I Hear Outstanding Prayers!" You may not know it, but many people around the world are thankful for your intercessory diligence. So, what's it going to be? Will you have coffee, lunch or dinner with the Lord in prayer?
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
