Apostle Grace Lubega
Zechariah 12:10(KJV); And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
Some Christians use the fact that they are under the grace as an excuse for a sloppy life of prayer.
But this ought not to be so.
Men under the grace are men of fervent and earnest prayer.
No man under the grace can claim that they lack the grace to pray because the Holy Spirit is the spirit of grace and supplication.
Paul speaks of laboring more than his brethren yet it was the grace of God that labored in and with him (1 Corinthians 15:10).
Being under the grace does not excuse us from a life of prayer. It teaches us to deny ungodliness (Titus 2:11-12) and this includes prayerlessness. Praise Him!

Men under the grace are men of fervent and earnest prayer. No man under the grace can claim that they lack the grace to pray because He is the spirit of grace and supplication.
PRAYER: Father, thank you for your Word. I have the Spirit of grace and supplication. He causes me to pray and to tarry in your presence. In this understanding, I have not received the grace in vain but with purpose and this causes me to seek your face with fervency and earnestness. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
