House of Prayer

Beloved of Christ Jesus, the temple of God is not a physical house or building, but the believers who gather in it. Take note the statement of the Lord Jesus: “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations”  (Mark 11:17). Since we are God’s temple, the place where His Spirit dwells, God wants His temple to be a  house of prayer. In other words, prayer must be an important part of the life of the believer. In order for  this life of prayer not to be quenched, the Lord said to Moses: “Give Aaron and his sons this command:  ‘These are the regulations for the burnt offering: The burnt offering is to remain on the altar hearth throughout the night, till morning, and the fire must be kept burning on the altar’” (Leviticus 6:9). As priests,  Aaron and his sons were given the task to keep the fre on the altar burning. So every morning they had to  put woods on the altar, set the burnt offerings on it and burn fat as sacrifices of salvation. Likewise, we  should offer the sacrifice of praise and worship to God daily as David did: “In the morning, Lord, you hear  my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly” (Psalm 5:3). This talks about  unbroken prayer.

God does not want the fire to be extinguished and we must always burning up in prayer,  praise and worship to God at every moment of our life. No matter how busy you are, building a relationship with God through prayer must never be abandoned, because our bodies are the temple of God and His  temple is a house of prayer. Brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, make prayer a daily lifestyle for we are the  house of prayer. May the grace of God be with us all. Amen!
