Re:Verse passage – Ephesians 6:17-20 (day five)
“With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,”
Does this verse stretch your perspective and approach to prayer like it does for me? Notice the repetition of the word “all”. Four times.
John Bunyan called this “All-Prayer”. Speaks to: Variety- praise, petition/supplication, confession, intercession. Consistency- not just in a set “prayer time”, but moment by moment throughout the day we remain in dialogue with the Living God. Persistency/Intensity- determined, disciplined, and tenacious. Community- the believers we work, worship, serve, sing, play, fellowship, study, and live with.
The “Who, How, When, and Why” I pray gets challenged and corrected by the Re:Verse passage this week!!
