Some years back, I was writing my speech for leadership training. As
a meditation on the principles of leadership and life success, I came to
realize one simple truth. I called it the secret of life. And I
taught it passionately and also engaged in it as much as I could.
Years after that realization, I was privileged to be teaching in
Theological School and by inspiration I entered into the corridors of
the same topic. Then it was clear to me why that same thing is the
secret of life. The Holy Spirit opened my eyes to some basic truths in
the Bible and I am amazed.
The Secret Of Life
What I am talking about is well known by all even though not everyone
understands it. It is called prayer. While this is still a mystery to the
most learned of us all, it is the house of true power. If anyone wants
true power, such must have a lifestyle of prayer. Yes, it has to be a
life of prayer.
While there are many things to discuss prayer, like how to make
it potent, how it should be done, how answers come, who should pray, to
who is the prayer offered, how often should we pray, how long should
we pray etc. I am particular about just one thing in this piece and
that is just to discuss why it is the secret of life.
In Luke 18, the master Himself encapsulates one of the truths of life in a
parable and the parable explains that men ought to pray always. That
means if we are not praying all the time, we are not living as God
wants. It means that our default mode as men is to pray all the time.
It further means, that if we want to identify men, one thing to
consider is if he is praying all the time.
Now, if you follow that parable you will find out it was through the
continuous prayer of the widow that her advisory was avenged. That
means the way that God ordained for us to achieve and get things done
is via prayer. Even though the king didn’t want to and it wasn’t in
his thought to attend to the issue he said because of her
continuous coming. This explains while it is the secret of life.
That’s how great men get things done.
I once watched one of the jingles of Daystar. It explains that the
power of your prayer is inconsistent. Remember 1Thessalonians
5:17 says, pray without ceasing. Friends, we have been sentenced to a
life of prayer, any other life you live outside this is not of God. I
will also like to end this piece with 1 Peter 4:7 which says the end
of all things is at hand and it, therefore, encourages us to be sober
and watch with our prayer. Embrace a life of prayer!
