Andrew Wommack Devotional 1st March 2021 – Quality Prayer
Today’s Topic: Quality Prayer
Scripture: Matthew 6:7, ‘But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.’
Bible Text: MATTHEW 6:5-8
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Today’s Message On Andrew Wommack Devotional 1st March 2021
Some of the most effective prayers are the shortest prayers. Jesus said, ‘Peace, be still,’ and the wind and the waves ceased (Mk. 4:39). He said, ‘Lazarus, come forth,’ and Lazarus came back from the dead (Jn. 11:43-44).
Today, there is a new emphasis on the quantity of prayer instead of the quality of prayer. Jesus never advocated long prayers, and there are only a few instances where Jesus prayed long prayers. This is not to say that communion with God is not important. It certainly is, but formal prayer is only one part of our communion with the Lord.
Psalm 5:1-2 uses the words ‘prayer’ and ‘meditation’ interchangeably. Therefore, communing with God through keeping your mind stayed on the things of the Lord is also prayer. There are also times in prayer when we need to be still and know that God is God (Ps. 46:10).
Many times we ask the Lord to speak to us, but He can’t get a word in ‘edge-wise.’ We’re doing all the talking.
