"The key to understanding the Bible is to look for Jesus in the Bible. Jesus is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible and don't find Jesus, re-read it! The Bible has one hero, His name is Jesus; one villain, that is Satan; one problem, that is sin; one solution, that is salvation. That is what the Bible is all about." -Dr. Adrian Rogers

Intense Prayer Life (8/5/2010)

As I'm sure most of you know by now, I enjoy learning about different people's lives. I enjoy reading their biographies, or even watching them live their daily lives as God leads them and uses them to change the world. I especially like learning from other people's life experiences and seeing how they have grown in their relationships with the Lord.

One such person has been Eva Mae LeFevre. Now I didn't even know she ever existed until a few months ago. However, learning a little bit about her life story has really grown my faith in the Lord. Eva Mae went to be with the Lord sometime last year. But, in a video I found about her, one of her close friends emphasized Eva Mae's intense prayer life.

This lady said that, if ever God would lay something on her heart to pray about, Eva Mae would just start praying--it didn't matter where she was. She also said that she would often drive Eva Mae to various places and every time Eva Mae got in the car she would say, "Okay, you drive and I'll pray," and Eva Mae would pray until they got to wherever they were going.

You know, after hearing that story, I had to examine my own life and realize that I am not like that. Oh, but how I long to have that kind of relationship with our Lord. Every failure is a prayer failure. There has never been one mistake, one sin, one anything that could not have been prevented through prayer.

Do you have the prayer life of Eva Mae LeFevre? If not, ask God to help you improve your prayer life. Ask Him to constantly put situations on your heart that you might go to Hm about in prayer.
