Chief Failure

We may have failed to give up bad habits or control our temper. We might have missed out on that new job or flubbed our entrance exams. As bad as these may seem at the time, they aren’t as bad as giving up prayer.

“The chief failure of prayer is its cessation.” – P.T. Forsyth

No matter how often we fail, no matter in what area, God is ready and willing to forgive it all and invite us to try again. He does that when we talk to him in prayer.

While we might find reasons for a pause or an interruption in our prayer life for some reason or another, a permanent discontinuation would be disastrous. Let’s not find out how bad that could really get.

Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. (James 5:16a, MSG)

“The chief failure of prayer is its cessation.”  – P.T. Forsyth

Prayer – Lord, it’s me, back again, finally. Help! Amen
