Prayer: A Conversation with God

03 Nov

Hello again!

This is what God gave me today in His word:

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, (1 Timothy 2:1-3)

People have a tendency, both in and outside of their prayer life, to shut them-self up into their comfort zone. – To only pray for them-self, and possibly a select group of others. This, however, is not what God wants. If Jesus had stayed within his comfort zone, he would’ve stayed on the Mount of Olives (where he prayed that God would take “this cup” away from Him), and then look where we’d be. Likewise, God wants us to not just say a quick couple of words to Him, but to have a conversation: He wants us to ask for everything we need, He wants us to rely on Him.

So we should pray for, along with our-self and our little group, all people. God is powerful, He can handle big requests. It’s only our flesh that keeps us from asking; that makes us think that God might not be powerful enough to accomplish something.

You are Loved!
