Watching and Praying Always 2
(week 41/06)
Olubi Johnson

In our article last week, we saw that to watch is to be constantly conscious of God’s presence with you and to pray is to commune with God through your thoughts, words and in tongues.

Why then do you need to watch and pray always?

Luke 21:36 KJV: Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. 

To be accounted worthy to be a partaker of the glory of God in these last days. It is this glory of God that will enable you to overcome the afflictions and abounding iniquity of the end-times.

Also it is because it is those who ‘watch and pray’ that hasten the coming the Lord, that they are accounted worthy.

Always means praying without ceasing.

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 KJV: Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

How can this be done practically?

By praying with your thoughts frequently acknowledging God with thanksgiving and then praying with words and tongues, to wash the feet of yourself and others at least once every 6 hours the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus:

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 KJV: And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Joshua 1:8 KJV: This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Mark 13:35 KJV: 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

2 Samuel 6:13 KJV: And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings.

At least once every six hours you make spiritual sacrifices (1Pet. 2.5) of:

  1. Sin offering: ‘Father I confess our sins’ (1 Jn. 1.7-2.1).
  2. Peace offering: ‘In Jesus Name we have life’ (Rom. 5.1).
  3. Meal offering: Thanksgiving in tongues (1 Cor. 14.16-17; Ps. 50.13-14).
  4. Burnt offering: Praying in tongues to edify yourself and others in love by ‘burning up‘ (Lk. 3.16, Mk. 9.49, Rom. 12.1) the sin nature in your flesh and in the air.

By doing this diligently you will ultimately become a carrier of the ark: the glory of God!
