' My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.’ Hosea 4.6 The greatest understanding that the believer must have is that which pertains to life, life that God has called to him live here on earth. Prayer opens the door for the breakthrough of this knowledge. The will of God is knowledge for man. The world and its desires is not the knowledge that God desires for His people. King David said ‘….. I do not concern myself with great matters or things to wonderful for me. But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother like a weaned child is my soul within me.’ Psalm 131.1-2 What David was in fact saying was that ‘the knowledge of the Lord is sufficient for me pertaining to all of life’ If Prayer is the means by which God reveals His plans to us then the lack of Prayer will see a great lack of Godly planning. This desire to know God and His plans for us must not allow anything to get in the way. It shall come through much humility because that is what prayer demands. The life of praying humbles us. Our affairs within community or whatever the matter there maybe, must be put aside to seek God first. The work of the church in community must never be the excuse that we do not have to pray. For a great part in our walk with God we have unknowingly substituted ‘works’ to be the excuse for us not really giving ourselves to Prayer.
