“总要儆醒祷告,免得入了迷惑.你们心灵固然愿意,肉体却软弱了。” 马可福音14:38
祷告是与神相遇的途径,是明白神的心意,领受神祝福的渠道。如果不祷告,我们如何能够在神的保守下去避开生活中的种种陷阱?
“38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mark 14:38)

“我为我神的殿已经尽力,豫备金子作金器,银子作银器,铜作铜器,铁作铁器,木作木器,还有红玛瑙可镶嵌的宝石,彩石和一切的宝石,并许多汉白玉。” 历代志上29:2

虽然大卫王知道神不允许他为神建造殿宇,但是他仍旧为建殿的事情尽心尽力做足够的预备。我们对于没有参与的事工,是否也有努力配合、积极祷告的态度?

“2 With all my resources I have provided for the temple of my God—gold for the gold work, silver for the silver, bronze for the bronze, iron for the iron and wood for the wood, as well as onyx for the settings, turquoise, stones of various colors, and all kinds of fine stone and marble—all of these in large quantities.” (1 Chronicles 29:2)

King David showed a good example of providing resources for God’s temple even though he was told he would not be building it. We should learn from this spirit to pray for God’s ministries in the world.

“那知他为我们的过犯受害,为我们的罪孽压伤‧因他受的刑罚我们得平安‧因他受的鞭伤我们得医治。”以赛亚书 53:5
我们常常为自己的遭遇抱怨神、责怪神。神若不爱我们,岂会让耶稣基督降世为人、遭受那撕心裂肺的酷刑!

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed..” (Isaiah 53:5)
