You’re a weak, little thing. Even if you can do a dozen pull-ups, a hundred push-ups, or even a thousand sit-ups. And even if you can run 25 miles, or bike 100 miles, or swim the English channel…you’re still a weak, little thing. If you compare yourself to other people, you might think you’re pretty strong. But when you compare yourself to Jesus, you’re not all that…or even a bag of chips. Sometimes you’re so weak, you don’t even know what to pray when you talk to God. But luckily your prayers can be 3 times better than you can even imagine. And that’s even when you don’t have a clue what to say. Wanna know how? Keep reading…
There’s a place in the Bible where it says God knows how weak we are. He knows we don’t even know what to pray like we should. But that’s where the power of three comes in. Jesus searches your heart. And He knows you don’t always know how to say what’s in your heart. When you pray to God with your whole heart, Jesus knows it. So, even if you don’t say things very well, His Holy Spirit helps make your prayer sound and work better. Then your prayer is lifted up according to God’s will.
Just think…it’s like having your own interpreter. Your weak words get changed into a strong message. And the Creator of the universe hears you and understands you. And He loves to hear from you. So…don’t ever think you shouldn’t pray to God just because you don’t know what to say. Each day just tell Him you love Him. Even if you can’t think of a new way to say it, tell Him that, too. And because God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are there for you, your prayer will be 3 times better than you think.
Will you give it try today? Here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
Life in God is three times better
Than anything this world might show.
If you’re glad that Jesus loves you,
Then pray today and tell Him so.
