What can I say about prayer? Did you know that prayer is very simple, but people make it complicated? Prayer is simply talking to God, sharing your thoughts and feelings with Him and spending time aware of His presence. Yes, that’s right, that’s all it is. Acknowledging The Father’s presence and talking to Him in Jesus’ name. The whole reason God created us is to gather a family unto Himself. He said He created us in His image, so don’t you like relationship, family and friendship? Well, so does He. The problem is, some people refuse to believe in Him because they just cannot accept Him by faith. They have to be able to understand and explain every little thing and if not, they just reject it’s existence. Some people toss the bible out the window and make up their own smorgasbord of religion and by the time they’re done, they are worshiping a totally different God than the one in the bible. Then you have some bible believing Christians, who believe in The True God of the bible, but they do not spend much time talking/praying to Him. If they do talk to him, they’re just asking for stuff. Can you imaging if every person in your life only addressed you when they wanted something? Most of us would not put up with that one-sided relationship for one week!
God already knows you, He created you…
Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV)5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were
born I sanctified you;
He yearns for us to want to know Him. He loves us. Therefore, I encourage you to start talking to God. Even if you don’t believe in Him, I dare you! Talk to Him and be honest. Just say, “I have a hard time believing you exist. If you do exist, please show me. I want to know the truth.”
If you are a Christian and you already believe that Christ and Salvation is real and He loves you, start spending more time getting to know Him. PICK UP YOUR BIBLE! So many Christians will not read and study their bibles. It’s heartbreaking. This bible is like God’s journal, if you will… All you need to know about Him is right in there and most people won’t take time to read it. I encourage you today to start getting to know God by praying and reading His journal, The Bible. I dare you!! If you will, He will give you the life you were born to live.
