When should you pray? Most of us think about prayer when we are stressed, scared or sick. But is that really the best time to pray? People who understand prayer know you have to pray before the storm comes. If you wait until your moment of greatest need it may be too late. You will not be able to pray as you should or as well as you could.
Matthew 26:41 says, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” Jesus knew that the key to being ready for life was time spent in prayer.
His disciples needed to pray, not for their success or their happiness or to change the events that were about to overcome them. No, Jesus said they needed to pray so they would not fall into temptation. A good prayer life today will keep you on your feet tomorrow.
