A Prayerful Step
1 Timothy 2:1 – I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—
The 2nd step in the GospelFit plan is prayer. Prayer is our conversation with God. We seek out direction and listen for guidance. Through prayer we continue to build our relationship with the Lord. As we work to walk in God’s path, we need to be connected to the source. We know that we need to put on the full amor of God for our everyday journey. However, we often forget to consult with the Lord regarding our health and fitness. Ironically, we act as if the body that is necessary for all the we do doesn’t need as much attention as the what we are doing. We need to remember the Word, the prayer as we find in Ephesians 6:17:18 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—
One important point of prayer is that God answers prayer. It is true that the prayers of the righteous availeth much. We do know the blessings that God has gifted us in the past in the form of answered prayer.
John 14:13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.
