Prayer Spree (5)

"but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” (Acts 6:4 NKJV)
Receiving  teaching on prayer is not the same thing as praying. Before a man can pray effectively he  must be adequately informed from God's word,  yet acquiring relevant information will not take the place of prayer. Until you have prayed you have not prayed.
Relishing  and talking  about the prayer life of the  partriachs of fait hwill not supply the want  of prayer;  you must get to a point where you actually "give yourself over" to prayer. Giving yourself over mean, to be sold-out to; to be pre-occupied with;  to be taken over by; to be engrossed in; and to be busy continuously with - prayer.
We must be given over to prayer  until Jesus, the Head of the hurch,  take notice that we are real  praying men like He took notice of certain commendable attributes in the churches of Asia in Revelation 2 & 3.
Did I meet you praying?

If your biography were to be written will prayer be a prominent part ?
