Prayed Up!

May 20, 2011

“It’s not about praying in the moment, it’s about being prayed up for the moment.”

I recently contemplated how to worship God so that I can connect with him and receive his heart on a matter. I’ve meditated on it even more as to “how to” apply that wisdom. I don’t want to speak out of my own heart – the heart is deceptive above all things – but out of God’s heart. So… do I stop and pray every time I want to say or do something? How does that work? AND when I have tried that, I don’t feel like I’m getting an aswer, or in a timely manner.

Somehow I feel like that isn’t the way it’s supposed to happen – at least not on a regular basis. There are definitely times like disciplining your children, or someone has pushed all your buttons and you need a minute to respond – correctly. Even so, in everyday situations, how do you flow smoothly in and out of conversations and actions but still have God’s heart and insights?

Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove (test) what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2

…whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Phillipians 4:8

Be ready to give an answer for the way you believe… 1 Peter 3:15

In spending time on a regular, consistent basis in God’s word, in fellowship with him, worshipping him you transform your thinking. You get his mind in your mind. You are making yourself ready to face any situation. When you forsake more of the world for more of God, you get more of his will.

That is why it is better to be prayed up for a situation than to pray in a situation.
