Psalm 80:18 (KJV)
So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
After realizing that his flesh would always fight against his prayer life, Uchenna decided that regardless of the way he felt each night when it was time to pray, he was going to pray for at least one hour each day. He noticed that if he tried to pray in his room, his bed was a real distraction, and he would be tempted to lie down, and eventually sleep off. So he decided he would leave the comfort of his room and go to a place where it would be difficult for him to sleep.
The first day Uchenna left his room to pray at night, he started by asking the Lord to quicken him to pray. He did this because he had come to discover that the Lord is the one who quickens us to call upon His name. That day, he prayed for one and a half hours because he really enjoyed the presence of the Lord and the quickening of the Holy Spirit.
One of the reasons some people find it difficult to pray is because they do not enjoy the presence of God in their prayer life. Prayer is meant to be the high point of our daily communion with the Lord. There is a sweetness of the communion of the Holy Spirit that is intensified when we truly pray in the spirit, it is called the sweet communion of the Holy Spirit (see 2 Cor 13:14). If for any reason, this communion affected, prayer becomes a dry and unpleasant chore.
It is because of the quickening of the Holy Spirit that we would be able to pray without ceasing.
Go into today asking the Lord to quicken you to pray.
