Pray and Watch

Let us pray urgently and groan with continual requests.  For not long ago, I was scolded in a vision because we were sleepy in our prayers and didn't pray with watchfulness.  Undoubtedly, God, Who "rebukes whom He loves," rebukes in order to correct and correct to preserve.  Therefore, let us break away from the bonds of sleep and pray with urgency and watchfulness.  As the Apostle Paul commands us, "Continue in prayer, and watch in the same."  For the Apostles continually prayed day and night.
