IS YOUR HOME A HOUSE OF PRAYER?

AHousePrayerIt is sad to me that there is much more praying in the mosques of Islam than in the churches of Christians. I wonder why.

Jesus said: “It is written, my house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves” (Matthew 21:13).

If God wants His house to be called a HOUSE OF PRAYER, should not our homes also be houses of prayer? Sadly, we have allowed thieves to come into our homes and steal away the most important thing God wants in our homes. This is how He wants His house to be named. This is how He wants your home to be named! A HOUSE OF PRAYER!

Prayer distinguishes the place where God delights to call home from all other homes. Prayer turns ordinary, humble dwellings into homes of great power.

“My house” implies that the owner of the house is God. The devil tries to steal payer from our lives and our homes. When we allow the world, the flesh, or the devil to steal prayer from our homes and churches, we can no longer call them “God’s house” any more. This refers to the church gathering we attend, the home we live in, and even more importantly, our physical bodies which house the Holy Spirit.

Prayer denotes a humble dependence upon God. Prayer brings the presence of God to bear against all enemies.

Be encouraged.
