This week the words watch and pray or be vigilant and pray were on my mind often. I don’t know why? And this kept popping up in many strange and different places.
Watch and Pray.
And then for some reason my eye fell on this one verse. After that I found the other verses quite easily….but you know I didn’t even read the whole verse. Just the first two words – watch and pray – and very clearly I realised this was for me. I must watch my life, not the life of others, and I must keep praying not talking.
When the bible says watch and pray it’s not for us to watch what others are up to. It’s so simple and so beautiful. Be still and quiet and listen and you will hear a still voice telling you “be watchful of your own life and keep praying”
Matthew 26:41 – “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Luke 21:36 – “Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
Mark 14:38 – “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
I love this so much
