I feel the need to write about the power of prayer this morning. I often explain to people that prayer is your day to day conversations with God. It is some of the most intimate moments with Abba we will ever have! I have had many people say that it’s hard for them to pray and get in their word. At one point in my life, I was right there with them!
If you and your best friend were with one another 24/7 and you didn’t say anything to them, nor did you really listen when they were speaking, wouldn’t that be really weird? It would hard to build a relationship with someone who you never spoke to or listened to when they were speaking. It would be like, you’d be strangers in the same place. When we don’t pray, read our word, or engage in his presence, just like our best friend, it would be REALLY hard to get to know them!
Don’t worry though, even if you feel you have strayed away from his presence he knows you better than you know yourself. He created you! “The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” -Job 33:4 (NASB)
One of the many things I love about God is, he meets you where you are at! You’re never to far away from him and his love! “And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” -Romans 8:38-39 (NLT)
For you who think prayer is hard, I was right there with you! It really isn’t difficult. It is simply a conversation, and we are blessed enough to have Holy Spirit to guide us even if we don’t know what to say!
Since I have been praying more often than I ever have, while using the word to form many of my prayers, my life has transformed! It is amazing what God can do just by praying! I never realized the power behind it!
I hope I have encouraged you not only to pray, but to truly build a relationship with God. It will be the best relationship you will ever have!
