"Prayer is finding out what God wants to do, and then being the vessel in whom God can reveal it."
Is God required as vital?
You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need]. My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, andrequire [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word].
Psalm 27:8 AMP
We don’t start out wanting only one thing. By chastening of the Spirit, by disappointment in life, by presenting a vision through the scripture – or a person – God Himself narrows us down to wanting just one thing. Do you know and want that one thing?
“A life of prayer is a radical lifestyle. You cannot walk like the world walks and be aware of God’s presence. If you want prayer, there will be many a ‘no’ in your life.
“Your ‘yes’ to God will produce many no’s. David had them. Read Psalm 101 where he makes decisions, drastic choices, for the purpose of his relationship with God.
“If you choose this lifestyle, you will not only be different from the world, you will be different from other Christians! It is a radical lifestyle, but I believe the richest and highest that mankind can possibly know.”
In this teaching, Martha explores what it means to live a lifestyle of prayer through the lives of David, Mary and Elijah—lovers of God who pursued and required as vital just one thing.
“Not even one second with the Lord is ever without profit even though it may seem to be. You can’t measure time or hoard minutes. Time is for God and it is to be lavishly poured out on Him…”

I have never seen prayer this way! Why isn't this taught in church? She makes prayer a dance of intimacy. Beautifully written, concise yet gripping.
