Prayer

May 7, 2015

Many today are participating and observing the National Day of Prayer throughout our country.  I also had an opportunity to attend a prayer breakfast this morning, a wonderful event.  This is a day to recognize the need for our country to not only observe a time of prayer, but to pray.  The scripture says, “if my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray.”  You see, it is more than just observing or saying a prayer.  The speakers this morning were asked these questions, ‘Why do we pray?, How do we pray?”  They all expressed sincere and personal thoughts of an intimate conversation.  Not just a meal time event, or when we need something, or when the problems of life are in our face, it is a personal, intimate, talk with God, a time to let Him know you, and for you to know Him.  The time is always, and constant.  He desires to have a relationship with us and it is almost impossible to have a relationship without communication.  We talk to Him, He listens…He talks to us, we listen.  That scripture that I shared closes by saying, “then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

He waits for us to approach Him, to talk to Him, to trust Him, and He listens, ready to forgive us and establish us as His own, and ready to heal and provide for us.  I pray for our country to call upon God, but I also pray that you will take the time daily to humble yourself and pray to Him.  Let me ask you, Why do you pray?  How do you pray?

I am praying for you.

Prayer isn’t about outlining our agenda to God; it’s about getting into God’s presence and getting God’s agenda for us.- (Mark Batterson)
