Do you communicate with God regularly? Can God recognize you? Have you spoken with God today? These are some of the rhetorical questions to answer.
Prayer:- it is a practice of communicating with one’s God.
Who is your God? Without knowing or been able to answer this, you might be missing it.
Prayer is the means of communicating with God, another rhetorical question is that, is your communication effective or how effective is your communication with God?
God loves us, He is your father and He is ready to listen attentively to you, to tell you things you don’t know and things you ought to know, only if you ask Him.
Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
Prayer should not be a routine for a believer rather it should be a lifestyle, it should be part of you, something you can’t do without.
The only time you communicate with God shouldn’t be only when you are in need or when you are in trouble, you should learn to talk to Him always.
NB:- A prayerless man is a powerless man.
It is also important to note that prayer is not one man’s duty, it should be between both parties. When you talk, you should be patient to hear God talk to you, don’t be in a hurry to leave His presence!!
Jesus, our practical example, when He was on earth being the son of God, He doesn’t take decisions on His own will, He spoke with His father always.
Matthew 14:23:- And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray; and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
He always created a meeting place for Himself and His father, even when He had lots of followers, it never affected His communication with His father.
It is very important we pray always without ceasing.
Luke 18:1:- And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.
-Please Lord, give me Grace to always stay in the place of prayer.
- Help me to hear you speak to me.
