When We Don't Pray

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Did you realize that when we don’t pray it’s a sin against God? First Samuel 12:23 says, “Far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you.”

When we don’t pray, it’s direct disobedience to the Word of God. First Thessalonians 5:17 says, “Pray without ceasing.”

When we don’t pray, we’re vulnerable. Matthew 26:41 says, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”

When we don’t pray, we’re powerless. It limits our relationship with God. It hinders us from knowing His will, His priorities, and His direction.

When we don’t pray, we rely on what we can do instead of what He can do.

When we don’t pray, we’re showing pride, self-sufficiency, and lack of discipline.

When we don’t pray, it leaves us weak, harried, and hassled.

So why don’t we pray? Let’s say with the disciples, “Lord, teach us to pray.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
