“Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.” 1 TIMOTHY 2:8 (NIV)
Definitely all around the world, people are praying.
However, we need to pray to get results and not just pray as a religious activity.
Apostle Paul clearly defines how we should pray:
Lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.
Are your hands Holy?
Are you angry either with yourself or another person?
Are you in dispute?
The enemy is smart at not preventing you from a praying activity but ensures that your heart is not right with your fellow human being not to talk about God.
How is your heart today as you pray?
“Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it.” 1 TIMOTHY 2:8 (MSG)
It is not the enemy you are praying to so don’t get angry with God.
Come before God with a pure and humble heart.
Free from sin and anger and resentment.
Without being angry or argumentative.
With clean hearts, free from frustration or strife.
“So I want men in every place to talk to God. They must have clean lives when they lift up their hands to talk to God. They must not be angry. They must have faith in God” 1 Timothy 2:8(WE)
Pray today the way God wants you to not the way you feel like doing it.
