“Call to me and I will answer you.” Hello God. I’m here, have time to talk? Yes, I long to share time with you. “I will tell you great and hidden things.”
Praying to God opens our conversation with Him. It is our time to pour out our thoughts and wait for His direction. I pray throughout the day. Sometimes prayer is just an acknowledgement, simply saying ‘hello God’, other times it a request about something. It may take a moment to express my gratitude, during a 15 minute break, mornings before my day begins and before bed. When and how often do you pray?
Prayer is the most important thing we can do. Not because God doesn’t know what is going on in our lives, but because it is the time when our relationship is most alive. I have learned that standing firm in our belief, in the darkness and the light keeps us close to God.
One of the devotionals I am studying decribes prayer as follows.
“We can “approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Heb. 4:16).
Our family keeps a prayer journal because we know God displays His power through supernatural answers to prayer. We take seriously the claim of Psalm 5:3 where David writes, “In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” Can you imagine living with the expectation that God will answer your requests and display His power on your behalf?”
Isn’t it amazing that God chose you to display His power through your life? Prayer is our connection.
