(DAY 2 OF THE 21-DAY FASTING AND PRAYER PROGRAMME)

Scripture Reading: 1 John 5:14-15

Dearly beloved, welcome to the second day of our 21-day fast. St. John Damascene defines prayer as “the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God.” Prayer is one of the most powerful gifts of communication God has given to us, and as we begin 2021, we shall be on our knees in prayer. I can hear the voice of discouragement, confusion and doubt saying, am tired of praying.” The Disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ felt the same confusion at various times with Him. Even though, they were conversant with the prayers of the Old Testament, they still approached our Lord Jesus Christ, and requested, “Lord, teach us to pray.” They asked Him to teach them to pray aright, (Matthew 6).
