Prayer is the key to unlocking God’s prevailing power in your life!
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
How is your prayer life?
Prayer is an unnatural activity. It is an assault on human autonomy – an indictment of independent living. To people in the fast lane determined to make it on their own, prayer is an embarrassing interruption. Prayer is alien to our proud human nature. And yet somewhere, some place probably all of us reach the point where we fall on our knees, fix our attention on God, and pray.
Why are we drawn to prayer? 1) We pray because we understand that the most intimate communion with God comes only through prayer. 2) Prayer also helps us feel surrounded by God’s presence. As we grow in prayer, God reveals more of Himself, breathing more of His life into our spirits. Through prayer, God gives His peace that passes all understanding.
People are drawn to prayer because they know that God’s power flows primarily to people who pray. God’s power can change circumstances and relationships. It can help us face life’s daily struggles. It can heal psychological and physical problems, remove marriage obstructions, meet financial needs. In fact it can handle any kind of difficulty, dilemma, or discouragement.
The greatest fulfillment (thrill) in praying is the qualitative difference in your relationship with God. Through prayer, you can carry on substantial soul-searching conversations with God every day.
Do you know more about prayer than practice it?
Do something absolutely radical – pray. God is able. He is enough for you. Trust Him!
Heavenly Father, I praise You as a personal God who cares about the big as well as the little things in my life. Thank You for the gift of prayer, the most powerful tool You have given us. Bless me with a deeper, more intimate relationship with You through prayer. Bless those who read this message with vibrant prayer lives that draw them near to You. Thank You Jesus. Amen.
