Always keep on praying…1 Thessalonians 5:17 TLB
If we truly believe He is with us, every moment of closeness with God will guide us to a beautiful prayer of praise and help us find peace in His presence…
There are no limitations of when we’re allowed to pray. God hears our prayers and knows our requests before we ask. Prayer is our expression of fellowship with the One who provides strength and covers us with faithful love.
God readies us to feel His nudging. He opens our hearts for quiet moments to remember He is HERE. He reminds us to be still, so we will experience the greatness of His love.
Prayer should begin by praising God for who He is…"Dear Heavenly Father, you are mighty, holy and true." He is pleased when we come before Him with gratitude and simply say, "thank you, Lord! "
Prayer allows us to present our requests. “Lord, fill my heart with peace, and help me find rest in you". It allows us to articulate our need for forgiveness. "Forgive my sin, oh Lord and help me surrender what causes me to doubt.”
Prayer addresses our need and the needs of others…"Lord, watch over us and guide us with the power of Your love. Help us TRUST in the timing of Your will. Fill us with everything we need to be reminded who takes care of us every moment of our lives. And help us remain faithful to You. "
As we spend time with God, He opens our hearts to reveal the power of His plan. He recognizes the longing of our hearts and reminds us He is closer than we think. As we commune with Him, He responds with guidance, assurance, hope and strength for what's to come.
God fills us with His presence and answers prayers in the timing of His will. Aren’t we lucky to have a Father who is ALWAYS listening? Talking to God will help us stay connected. He IS in charge of our days. He is HERE; handling EVERY single thing. God will be honored when we take time to PRAY and PRAISE Him for taking care of us and those we love. There will never be a day without Him.
Dear God, thank you for loving us through things that make us stronger. Forgive us when we forget You have planned every moment of our days. Strengthen the heart of our faithfulness and help us remember YOU are in charge of ALL things. Help us TRUST in You and not rely on our own understanding. Humble our hearts with PRAISE. Strengthen our relationship and help us remember WHY we need to commune with You EVERY single day. Thank you for love that holds us together. It blesses us in mighty ways. Amen
