Apostle Grace Lubega
John 15:4 (KJV); Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
Prayer is not meant to be occasional, consisting of moments we create for God based on our convenience.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:17, we are instructed to pray without ceasing.
How is this possible? The answer is in knowing how to abide in Christ.
To abide is to remain present with Him, that is, to stay attuned to Him no matter where you are.
It is the ability to hear Him, feel Him and see Him in the busiest environment.
Some people stop praying the moment they leave their bedrooms. A man who knows how to abide moves with his closet; he never leaves his place of prayer.
At any point within your day, you should be in prayer, bubbling in tongues and attuned to what God is doing. When you exercise your life in this reality, the power of God will always be available for you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: To abide is to remain present with Christ, that is, to stay attuned to Him no matter where you are. It is the ability to hear Him, feel Him and see Him in the busiest environment.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for enlarging me in the wisdom of prayer. I receive this instruction and exercise myself in it. I pray always, with my spirit alive to Your convictions and desires, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
