One of the greatest things we can do as God’s people is pray. Prayer changes things! Prayer is absolutely essential for every follower of Jesus. I’ve spoke with many Christians that have told me that they don’t know how to pray.
Talk to God like you would talk to your best friend. A mentor of mine once told me he would take 2 chairs and face them toward each other and imagine Jesus seating in one of them. He said it helped him learn to talk to God. Just remember elegant speaking doesn’t move the heart of God. A pure and contrite heart does. Be yourself. Tell the Lord how much you love and desire Him in your own words. Speak from your heart! Bare your soul! Share with The Lord all your wants, needs, desires and yes even your shortcomings. He loves when we come to Him and ask for His Will to be done in our lives.
As we humble ourselves, lay at His precious feet and pray, He will pour out His love, wisdom and direction for our lives. As you pray, never be in a hurry. Love on The Lord and let Him love on you. A consistent prayer life will strengthen and build a more intimate relationship with our beautiful Creator! How precious is intimacy with God!
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
