Morning my lovely Peeps!
A couple of things came up yesterday about prayer and relationships with God so I thought I’d share…
Firstly, I’m praying today for a family member having medical treatment. I always pray for things like this to go well and work effectively, but especially so when I can do nothing else to help achieve the desired outcome: God is not a last resort, He is first, but when you can’t do anything else for someone, you can still pray for them.
Secondly, I was talking to someone recently who said it was a huge revelation to them that prayer wasn’t the sitting or kneeling with eyes closed and arms folded, they said they were so freed by the idea they could pray and walk or just do a quick one-liner to ask for help or thank Him for something as part of their day. I was taught to talk to God like He’s a family member (because He is! Your Heavenly Father) as the scripture says, we can come boldly to the throne….we can have an audience with the King because of this relationship. If you’ve never prayed that way just try it; Thank Him for a few things (as you see them) while walking or driving or hoovering….God loves your full attention and quiet time together, but He hears always so talk to Him always.
Thirdly, Following on from above, the sermon we heard yesterday was about getting close to God and spending time with Him, resting in Him….you can’t feel comfortable doing that if you don’t talk to Him regularly. Like any other relationship, it takes time and effort, but whether it’s a one-liner or a couple of hours, He wants to hear you and help you.
Where are you inspired to pray?
Have a great day,
