We as human beings we like to experience new things and we are so excited about new things but as time passed by the excitement phase went out and exhausting phase came in.
It’s been cycle in our lives. Everytime we get a new thing we neglect the old.Everytime we get used to it we try doing it in a very negligent way.
Many of us have been doing the same thing in our Christian walk as well. For many prayer has become a boring aspect, reading Bible has become a mandate, Worship has become a time to gather people and quiet time is a waste of time.
No wonder Christians are dying spiritually day by day.
It’s time for us to reinvent ourself with God in our daily spiritual lives. If we need to reinvent ourself we need to get back to the basics.
We all know in the earlier days Mahindra jeep (Gypsy) was the famous one but later on the market started to fall but when they reinvented themselves with a new model new design with Mahindra Scorpio they started to grow.
We will die if we don’t keep updating ourself simple thing we all know that if a system is not updated regularly there are more chances for virus to attack.
Our spiritual lives need to be updated with God everyday or else Satan will affect us with various viruses and at last we will land up walking away from God.
We started with great zeal, with great enthusiasm in our Christian life but as days, weeks, months, years passed by our zeal left, our passion left, our enthusiasm died out.
We know that disciples when they were called were in a learning state and then we find that after they learnt they were filled with passion and lived a life of zealous until the last breath of our life.
We go in an opposite direction, we start off with passionate but as we learn we die out in our spiritual life. The more we know the more we should be enthusiastic.
Let me quote this, “When we know that every work we do makes a difference then our every work will be with sincerity”
Christian life is all about God and me. It is not about God and traditions, it is not about God and rituals but it is all about God and me.
If we should not die then we need to have revival.
What does Revival mean?

A new believer in Rajasthan read the word of God that morning and that passage was about Lazarus being raised from the dead. As the person was walking he saw one dead man was been taken to the burial ground, he said put him down and the man prayed in Jesus name let the dead be raised and the dead man raised up. Revival began 75,000 people took baptism on Jan 2016.
Let us understand the power of prayer.
One boy messaged me last Sunday night and said my sister is admitted in the hospital because she is pregnant and doctors are saying it is very risky to operate and with all faith I prayed and said by tomo morning she will have normal delivery and even before I got up he messaged me and said at 4 in the morning she had normal delivery.
Prayer changes all our situations.
Luk 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
The people who prayed for workers themselves became workers.
When we start praying God will move in our lives so mightily that every impossible task will be completed, every situation will be brought under control.
How should I pray?
Jas 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
Ask in faith never waver in prayer, no doubts.
Power of prayer
Mat 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Mat 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Church, believer of God know the power of prayer and let us start reinventing our walk with God. let us start living a life worthy of the calling that God has called each and every one of us to.
Jeremiah 2:32 – Jer 2:32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.
Why don’t we pray?
1. Because we have lukewarm love for Jesus
2. Prayer is not our Priority.
3. They have learnt to live without prayer – Matt 7:22
4. Some people don’t believe – Marl 11:24
