This Is the Hour to Pray

The warning Peter wrote to “all who are in Christ,” the “strangers in this world,” is a necessary reminder today. As we watch the stock market falter and hear the call to diversify one’s portfolio to include silver and gold, the wisdom of heaven has this to say:

  • Your FAITH is of greater worth than gold, because gold perishes in the fire.
  • Your BORN AGAIN status is imperishable because it was birthed through the living and enduring Word of God, not the perishable seed of man which brought your first birth.
  • GOD’S WORD stands forever, whereas man dies and his glory with him.
  • Your INHERITANCE in Jesus Christ never spoils or fades.

(See 1 Peter 1:7, 1:23-25, 1:4)

Peter also goes on to say that you and I are to be self-controlled and alert. This is an hour unlike any other in modern times. As long as we make it our goal to prioritize the eternal {our daily walk with Jesus, our salvation and that of our fellow-man, God’s Word, and our eternal reward in Christ}, we will prepare ourselves appropriately for what is to come. Keep in mind, if you are in the Lord Jesus, you have His peace. God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of love, of power and of self- control. Allow these products of His Spirit to fuel your prayer life.

This is the hour to pray.

Application: Pray that the Father in heaven leads you in the way that will grant you optimal influence for the advancement of His kingdom.

Loving the family of God deeply,
