Prayer: Conversing with God
Today marks our 7th day of prayer. There is power in prayer, and an even greater power when we as a family of believers give ourselves to praying for the same concerns. The purpose of this 40 days of prayer are many. For some it is to look beyond ourselves in the focus of prayers. For others it is to develop a prayer life that may be absent or weak. For others it may be to intensify an already healthy prayer life. As I mentioned Sunday, prayer is not an option for the follower of Christ it is mandatory, and to not engage in prayer is disobedience to the commands of Jesus. The question that plagues my mind is why wouldn’t one who is dedicated to following Christ involve themselves in active prayer? In fact, how can you be a follower of Christ without a life of prayer? Prayer is the power. Prayer is the difference maker. Prayer is the door through which the power of God enters our lives. To put things into perspective, do we realize what a privilege it is to talk to a holy and righteous God? The creator and controller of the universe offers us the honor of talking to him; who are we to say no thank you, I can do it by myself. Prayer doesn’t make you weak. Just the opposite. It is the substance that makes you strong. Remember without God we are nothing. Remember that as you approach him in prayer. So, if you are not praying, start today and join us as we seek God in prayer for the next 33 days. May God strengthen you and may he guide you in all your ways. Blessings
