Our INSUFFICIENCY in prayer takes us to our DEFFICIENCY in our faith. That happens because of our DESOBEDIENCE to the Word of God, reason why we charge or burden ourselves with INDIFFERENCE towards God, to our brothers and sisters in faith, and to the non-believers, but above all the CONSEQUENCES and results are suffered by our family.
And to add our INCOMPETENCY to do our job in the work of God neglecting our responsibilities in exchange for excuses to not fulfill those responsibilities.
In regards to God, because we neglect our EFFERVESCENCE (our fervor) in our intimacy with Him.
In relation to our brothers and sisters, because of our NEGLIGENCE in regards to our communion and fellowship with them.
And in reference to the non-believers, for the SCARCITY or lack of courage and boldness to carry on our mandate to preach the Gospel.
Everything is interconnected in our spiritual life, and the worst is that our immediate family, including ourselves, suffer the CONSEQUENCES of our INCONSISTENCY!
2 Timothy 1:6-8
"6 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Not Ashamed of the Gospel. 8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God..."
