A person can survive forty days without food,
four days without water,
but only four minutes without oxygen.
I rushed off to face the day without hitting my knees first.
I immediately regretted it. I was running late, but those precious minutes entering the throne room of God make such a difference.
Prayer is oxygen for my soul.
Without prayer, I am more anxious. I am easily irritated. I lack the life-giving grace required to survive the polluted atmosphere of this broken world.
Prayer awakens my soul. My senses tune in to the moving of the Spirit as I look up to my Healer.
Prayer is my lifeline.
When my breathing starts to grow ragged, it’s a sure sign that my prayer life has unraveled.
My friends, we need to stay tethered to God.
Your soul is craving a fresh encounter with Him. Get on your knees and breathe in His presence.
Read James 5:13-20. How does James describe prayer as a lifeline for God’s people?
Listen to this heart cry. Pour out your heart to your God on your knees. Hold nothing back. Ask Him to oxygenate your weary soul.
