Prayer and praise bridge the wide gulf between the repentant heart, the worshipping spirit of man that ushers him right into the throneroom before our holy Father. Isaiah 55:6 states,"Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near." Likewise, I Thessolonians 5:17 states, "Pray without ceasing." We must remain in an attitude of prayer throughout our day, remain in the Lord, abide in Him and He will give you the desire of your hearts!Of course, just as the spirit has prompted me to add the following, as we truly abide with Him without ceasing, our desires will be turned 180 degrees from what the flesh might desire to what is pleasing in His sight and how he might be glorified in the fulfilment of our desire! That is the wonder working power he sheds on us to move us closer to Christ-likeness and into the victor's circle!

  1. AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!

    I've been teaching on the book The Holiest of All and With Christ in the School of Prayer by Andrew Murray on Mondays. This is the very heart of our calling empowered by the Holy Spirit to do just that - pray without ceasing and to seek Him in all things!

    Oh how I would hate to see how short I would come if I had to build my own bridge to God.

    Be blessed and thank you for sharing this photo with the verse!

  4. Your wording of the "victor's circle" reminds me of a bullseye. The more we pray we closer we get to our Lord. Great post!

  6. This has always been one of my favorite verses. It makes me think of the devotion of monks and how they pray at certain times every day.
