“…Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak… ” Matt 26:41 NIV 1984 [italics and emphasis mine]
If you call a seminar on prosperity, the church will be full; call seminar on courtship and marriage the pews will almost be filled...but dare to call seminar on prayers, the turn up—Pastor and his family. On the eforum, no lively contribution is made when we talk about prayers—why is that? We know we ought to pray without ceasing, we know the importance of prayer yet we somehow become aloof when it comes to it.
The disciples in the scripture above went to sleep when Jesus asked them out to pray, they let him down at the time when he needed them most. Our religion has not helped either, it has turned the most beautiful experience into religious ritual—prayer is simply talking to God. It doesn’t have to be in the synagogue, it can be in your bedroom, bathroom, car, office—anywhere. When we pray, we not only communicate our heart to God, but also affirm in our spirit what we believe and ask of Him.
