DAY 44

LUKE 22: 39-46
DEVOTION

In modern society we are subject to great pressures such as heavy workloads, strained interpersonal relationships and tight economic conditions. Moreover, with advanced modern technology, we are exposed to even greater challenges. We may be addicted to the online illusory world that lures us into the devil’s temptation. Jesus’ experience of praying in Gethsemane tells us that prayer is a pressure releasing tool and the best weapon to withstand the devil’s temptation. It is also a through channel that helps us maintain a good relationship with God.

There is a familiar hymn that says:

Every time I pray, I move your hands;

what my hands cannot do, prayer can.

Every time I pray, the mountain can be moved,

the road can be straightened,

every nation will turn to you.

FOR REFLECTION

• When you face difficulties in your work, your daily life and your service to God, do you rely on yourself to settle them, or do you lay your problems in God’s hands through prayer?

• In the process of learning to pray, do you encounter any difficulties? How do you overcome them?
