Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. – Colossians 4:2 (NIV)
Check your devotion level.
Are devoting yourself to prayer?
One of the Strong’s Concordance definitions for such devotion stems from the King James usage of the word continue. It simply states the word may be used in the sense of the ability to persevere and not to faint.
Could that be the state of your commitment to prayer?
Are you persevering?
Are you continuing without fainting?
Imagine if you had such devotion and commitment to prayer that you continued, persevered and never fainted. Don’t dig into the other definitions of adherence, constant readiness and steadfastly attentive. Just focus on the perseverance and not fainting at the task.
