There was a tribe of early African believers, who were earnest and regular in private devotions. Each one had a separate pathway leading to their private spot in the thicket where he would daily pour out his heart to God. Over time, these paths became well worn. As a result, if one of them began to neglect prayer, the others would notice. They would kindly remind the negligent one, “Brother, the grass grows on your path.” God has a path of life for us and it begins with daily intimate prayer time and devotion with our Lord. Don’t let this world steal the joy of our fellowship with God by allowing our flesh and busy schedules cause us to neglect our private prayer times with Jesus. “Now the end of all things is near; therefore, be earnest and disciplined in prayer” 1 Peter 4:7. Don’t allow any grass to grow on your prayer path!
