After a year into the pandemic, many things have changed and one of those is our prayer lives. How did God use this season to teach us how to pray and pursue Him?
James and Rebecca Aladiran
In an episode of Standing Together with hosts Claire Worth and Fergus Scarfe, guests James Aladiran and his wife Rebecca shared to us what happened with their prayer lives after the pandemic broke out. James and Rebecca are the founders of the Prayer Storm movement, a ministry that aims to equip people to be zealous and strategic in prayer.
The father of two kids shared how he saw people grow their prayer life during the pandemic. However, he also saw people ceasing in praying after the lockdowns started lifting. James is urging everyone to be people who keep who pray no matter what their season is.
“God is calling us to be people that are able to pursue him regardless of circumstances,” James said. “When that becomes the foundation of our relationship with him, then it doesn’t matter what life throws at us. We’re still gonna be pursuing God.”
God is using this season to reconnect with us and cultivate our relationship with Him.
“Let’s use this season to actually dig deeper in establishing a real heart connection with the Lord,” he added.
Rebecca then shared how their family’s prayer life has changed throughout the pandemic. She shared how they turned their home into a prayer altar and how they pray and worship together with their kids daily.
Year of maturity
James then ended his interview with a powerful declaration of what he thinks might happened this 2021. He believes that this is a year of maturity for everyone.
“One of the key things the Lord was speaking to us about was about a year of maturity. We believe it’s a word for the Body of Christ where God is calling us to mature into the sons of God He’s called us to be.”
