I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. (1 Timothy 2:8)
Today’s Morsel: Under the gospel, prayers are not to be confined to any one particular house or place of prayer, but men are to pray everywhere. We must pray in our closets, pray in and with our families, pray at our meals, pray when we are on journeys, and pray in the solemn assemblies, whether in public or in private. We must pray in love; without wrath, without malice, and without anger against any. We must pray in faith, without doubting, and without disputing. Paul said that men ought to pray everywhere. Jesus said that if men pray they would not faint (Luke 18:1). Just a few moments on one’s knees or with their hands raised can change a person's life or the life of others. As the psalmist said, “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalms 107:8).
Sing: Whisper a prayer in the morning, whisper a prayer at noon, whisper a prayer in the evening, oh keep your heart in tune.
Thought For Today: “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!”
