But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray in seclusion. Luke 5:16
Prayer Is Beautiful
Prayer is a declaration of dependence upon God. Phillip Yancy
How beautiful a picture this is of Jesus slipping away to pray.
It is His declaration and revelation to us where our life comes from; a relationship with Abba Father.
Prayer is a love language between God and us.
While you join in helping us with your prayers, thanks will be given by many persons on our behalf for the gracious gift of deliverance granted to us through the prayers of many believers.
2 Corinthians 1:11
Prayer is not just for me; it is for us.
It is easy to become self-centered in our prayers, asking only for ourselves, not listening to Him, or interceding for others.
God has designed us to co-labor with Him in bringing His kingdom to earth.
"Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference." Max Lucado
The power of our prayers isn't us; it is Him.
There is never inherent power in an electrical cord. Even when plugged in, it is only a conduit. The power comes from the electricity.
Plugin by praying!
Pray, for God is love, and He desires for you to know the fullness of Himself.
How have you been inhibited from praying?
Lack of belief in the reality of prayer?
Lord, You have promised to draw near to us when we draw near to You. Here trusting that You love us and want to spend time with us. Amen
