If I am not mistaken, police officers when they are on patrol drive around with their eyes and ears wide open for any kind of criminal activity, breaking of the law, speeding, people in need, etc., in order to enforce the law and help anyone in their jurisdiction, or assigned territory, requiring aid and assistance. I have noticed over the years while we are all called to pray to God that some seem to have a particular and very strong calling to pray. In fact, the calling is so strong it seems like prayer to them is as necessary as drawing the next breath. Whether we are people simply called to pray as we all are, or whether we are people with an extremely strong calling to pray, I believe we should all be on prayer patrol.
Prayer patrol? Yes. Keeping our eyes and ears – and hearts – wide open to a world in desperate need of the Lord Jesus Christ, of love and prayer, of encouragement and lots else. But oh, prayer is so very, very, very important. And while I believe many of us are prone to simply pray for ourselves and for those we know and love and those in our immediate circles so to speak, I believe the ultimate and ideal way to pray is to pray as the Lord leads us whenever He leads us to pray for whomever He leads us to pray. Whether silently we pray to God, whether we pray aloud, whether we pray quietly or loudly, however we are led to pray, oh let us all cry out to God in prayer!
Police officers work on shifts. They are on duty or off duty. Let all of us who love and follow God be always on duty – ever ready to pray when God puts it on our hearts to pray. Oh, let us cry out to God! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord most high! Thank you God! AMEN!
“Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray.” Psalms 5:2 NKJV
