No matter what – prayer is powerful
When you pray to the one true, living, loving Creator of all the heavens and the earth, you’re talking to the only one in existence who can make something from nothing. You’re communicating directly with the source of life…God. His power becomes your hope. His strength becomes your support. His love and sacrifice become your redemption. And that’s why prayer is powerful.
Many people think (or feel) when they don’t get the answer to their prayer they want, God must not be listening…or certainly not answering. But praying is about asking God for things and getting them. It’s about having a real, ongoing relationship with your Creator. Jesus (who IS God, by the way) calls you His friend…if you trust in Him. And like any good friend, He loves to hear from you. That’s why prayer is powerful. It gives you an open line to the only One in existence who can give you eternal life. How cool is that?!
Hearing your own prayer builds a better you.
The Bible says ” So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word.” So when you pray, think of something you can remember from the Bible and add that to your prayer. Your faith will be strengthened as you say it because that’s how God’s Word works. If you’re not a Christian, you might think I’m bonkers to go on like this. And you’d be right…if it weren’t true. But it IS.
It’s vitally important to me that you understand there IS truth, and it exists because God exists. And because God exists, and because He came to earth as a man to suffer and die for your sake and mine…you can now talk directly to Him without some high priest or other go-between.
Prayer is a conversation with the one true, living, loving God who created everything from nothing. Start talking to Him today. I promise…He listens. And even though His answer isn’t always what you’d want or when you want it, prayer is powerful. What would you like to say to God or ask Him today?
