Prayer

It seems too easy,
yet
complicated.

PRAYER

Something bigger than talking,
yet
as intimate as conversation between two individuals in love.

The Bible makes it clear, God loves us and wants us to spend time in prayer.

The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray, understanding it was an important part of their lives.

As our pastor recently pointed out,
prayer is more than supplication.

Never feel foolish when taking needs to God, He wants to discuss these with us.

However there is more.

Praying on behalf of another,  like Jesus prayed for Peter, is vital.

Intercession builds love in the heart of the person praying and it works.

Many stories of people being saved from destruction or harm have been linked to prayers of others on their behalf.

God wants us to cover each other in prayer.

To bless those dear to us without forgetting to ask on behalf of the people over us: pastors, community leaders, judges, bosses, president…

Prayer is even more than these two things.

Talking with God means communication is running both ways.

Thanks and praise for all God has done,  given,  provided.

Heartfelt joy at building a relationship with the Creator of the universe, not unlike too people who are in love.

And yet prayer is deeper still.

Let nothing hinder your prayers.

Whether it be schedules or sin or bitterness, choose to make a change.

Because prayer is important, powerful,
vital.
