Prayer is really something special, opens up amazing opportunities, creates an inner turmoil before starting, causes every telephone to call simultaneously and attracts the presence of God into our lives. Why is it so hard to pray sometimes I ponder about today? Even though I know, from the bible and from experience the amazing power of prayer, still after more than 25 years as a believer the inner resistance is just as strong as ever in my life.
Prayer is really something special for us as believers.
Paul writes to the Philippians ‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;‘ is an amazing promise to us who believe in Jesus. And still getting to pray is kind of a mystery to me. We should at least pray out pure self-preservation.
Prayer is a way of let go of our burdens, lay them down at the feet of Him who knows no limits, are hindered by no borders, are well-known with the unknown, who has both present and future in His hands, He walked on the water, opened blind eyes and set the oppressed free. He is the same today as He was yesterday, He still lives and still works, He still speaks and He still makes the impossible possible.
Let us seek the Lord, open our hearts to Him to let Him speak to us and lead His with His word.
