Growing in Holiness in the Prayer Room

God brings inner and outer transformation. Then we take Him with us out into the marketplace, and people are drawn to the Holy Spirit living within us.

The prayer room helps us to become great in God’s eyes rather than man’s. It helps us to pursue the journey to greatness. As you attempt to get involved in His House of Prayer in your city or church, realize that it requires humility and a servant’s lifestyle daily
(Matthew 20:26-27). Those who lead in Houses of Prayer open the way to God’s pathway of greatness. They must be willing to go through difficult and refining situations that seem unbearable at times—but are so worth it (Isaiah 48:10).

Jesus went through the cross for the joy set before Him. We must trust God’s leadership, and live in His grace and for His glory (1 Cor. 12:8-10; 2 Corinthians 4:17; Romans 818). We are partnering with Him and are seeking heavenly rewards instead of earthly ones (Matthew 6:1-20).

I heard about a famous professional baseball player who said that the aim of his life was to hear his manager say to him, “You are the greatest player I have ever coached.” He was motivated by the hope that one day he would hear his manager’s affirmation. He was waiting for that day. How many multitudes of athletes feel like this? But how much more should we as Christians be motivated by the hope that one day we will hear our Master’s affirmation. One day we will hear him say to us personally:

“Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” (Matthew 25:21).
