Prayer…It is vital to our growth in Christ.
It is a necessary ingredient for us to become all that God intends for us to be. But what is prayer? Prayer is simply communication with God. It is partnering with God to align our desires and plans with His desires and purposes for us.
We do not pray to earn God’s favor. We have the privilege of praying because God favors us! Whatever is going on in our lives, God wants us to share those things in prayer with Him. Yes, God knows all about it before we pray. However, we do not pray to inform God of our problems as much as we pray to inform ourselves that God is bigger than those problems.
When we focus our attention on the struggles of life, they tend to grow from our perspective. Yet, when we focus our attention and gaze upon God in prayer, we realize just how big a God we serve!!
Psalm 46:1 declares, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
Do you need some help today? Call on the Lord. He is a present help…here right now. Let Him be your refuge and strength. He is as close as a simple prayer for help.
Sharing some hope today,
