Apostle Grace Lubega
Colossians 4:2 (KJV); Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
Altars are a fundamental part of the life of salvation.
The altar may be an individual altar, a family altar, an altar at the workplace, a national altar or a continental altar.
Many people understand the importance of altars and are faithful in ensuring that the altars are burning with the fires of their fervent prayers.
While these have understood altars as avenues of consistent prayer, not many know that watching is also critical to the altar.
No altar is complete without watchmen.
It is no use praying for your family when you are not watchful and alert enough to know the spiritual events that may affect your family; it is no use praying for a nation when you do not watch for that nation. A watchman-less national altar may never know what attacks are planned against that nation and is incapable of making effective prayers.
I urge you this day to look beyond only building altars for prayer but understand that the altar must watch too.

GOLDEN NUGGET: No altar of prayer is complete without watchmen.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this wisdom in prayer. Thank You because I understand the responsibility of watching. I am spiritually alert and awakened. Because I am, I never ‘beat the air’ in prayer. This is the testimony of every altar I build, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
