2 Timothy 2:22 But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
Zephaniah 3:9 For then I will change the language of the peoples / Into a pure language / That they may all call upon the name of Jehovah, / To serve Him with one accord.
Psalm 81:10 I am Jehovah your God, / Who brought you up out of the land of Egypt; / Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
Fellowship to help us know Christ and pursue Him
We should call on the Lord out of a pure heart, seeking nothing more than God Himself. We can call on Him loudly or quietly, but the best way is to call out, to call audibly. God gave us a mouth to call on Him. Romans 10:9 says, “That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Furthermore, we should call on the Lord’s name daily and even moment by moment. This is just like our breathing. Calling on His name is the simplest and sweetest prayer. By calling on His name throughout the day, we can pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:16 – 18 says, “Always rejoice / Unceasingly pray / In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
