Watch And Pray

Watch And Pray


Prayer is the key indeed, prayer is a lifestyle and prayer helps us survive spiritually. 

Jesus Christ told the disciples many times to pray. We can see that Jesus Christ Himself survived with prayers and fasting as well. When we talk about one of the necessities for Spiritual survival, prayer is a key. 

You can never do away with prayer. This is the reason why I added even Jesus Christ prayed... He the Lord when He came down, He had to hide Himself most at times and pray because He wanted to survive in the ministry.

We can see "pray" in the bible several times in both the new and old testament. Those who became great were prayerful people. 

So in the New Testament, Paul also tells us to pray all the time. 

1 Thessalonians 5:17

[17]Pray without ceasing.

Ephesians 6:18

[18]Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Prayer is a key that unlock certain doors in life, prayer brings breakthrough both in ministry and in our life as a whole. So for we to breakthrough, we have to take our prayer life serious. 

What prayer can do for you is great. Prayer can help you get something you have to take in 6 years time within a month. Prayer can help you get Spiritual blessings and strength to tarry and defend your faith as a believe.

Colossians 4:3

[3]Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: 

Prayer brings life and strength in you. Without prayer you can silence the Holy Ghost fire in you. You may think you are in the fire because you are getting rhema everyday but unfortunately you are dying slowly. 

When your prayer life dies, your spirit man also dies. I have shown you how prayer is very important in our walk with God or as Christians but I want to tell you another dimension that if we become ignorant of, we will be praying whiles we are perishing.  

Watch is also another system that was introduced by Jesus Christ and Apostle Paul also laid emphasis on it. He said "watch and pray". There are many that mostly pray but because they are ignorant of Satan's devices, they perish or they get trapped. Prayer is meant for us to be in the presence of God, but without watching you can still be praying and the devil is taking hold of you.  


To watch means be on guard or be alert. We can be doing so many things that can hijack our prayer life and this can delay our blessings. So when we pray and watch as believers, we will always overcome the devil. We watch by knowing and applying the bible and with this we will know the tactics of the devil so we will overcome the devil all the time. 

Beloved, let us watch and pray. Let us be on guard and keep our souls from whatever can end our prayer career. 

Watching is discipline, you must train your body such a way that it will accept the prayer system of a warrior. 

You don't have to sleep, you don't have to be ignorant you have to study daily and listen to sermons as well to keep yourself updated with heaven informa and you shall be overcomer. 

Let us alert and keep focus, let us keep alert and pray all the time that we will overcome day by day.

Ephesians 6:18

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;  

The enemy get the opportunity to sow bad seeds in your life if you refuse to be on guard. 

May God bless you in Jesus name. 

How Can You Be On Guard/Watch?

1. Being mindful of whatever you do 

2. Keep listening to the good doctrines 

3. Refrain your foot from people and places that can destroy your spiritual life. 

Don't give yourself to too much sleep, you can "watch" the night and tarry in prayers.
