Text: : "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." - Luke 21:36.

Comment: The word "watch" in the context of the text for today, has the meanings of keeping a guard upon oneself against sin, and of being on the lookout or being observant as to see what comes or happens. This is spiritual vigilance which requires diligent reading or searching of the Scriptures in order to know and understand the signs of the times that are physically staring people in the face today. And it must be accompanied with prayer of faith to God for His mercy, protection and deliverance from the trouble or tribulation that will shake the whole world and destroy the wicked or ungodly at the appointed time. At that time would be fulfilled the prophecy, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” - Romans 10:13;  See also Joel 2:32; Matthew 21:22, Acts 2:21 etc.

It should be realized, that our prayers will not be heard or answered by God if we do not repent of our sins, pray in accordance with His will, or endeavour to live uprightly or honestly at all times by His grace. (Isaiah 59:1-4) Scripture says: “Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.” “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” - John 9:31; 1 John 3:22.
