Okay so we are back to the subject on prayer. I would like to share something with all of you. My prayer life is nowhere near were I would love it to be. I have always thought that prayer is very boring. I lie for the devil right there!!!!! I know it is wrong to think that or believe that. Now I have prayed for people, I’ll sit down and say a prayer, I’ll prayer a Bible verse that sticks out to me, ext. I always thought about prayer. I have read books about prayer. I have prayed the prayers from the Bible. But this is not all we have to do.
We can read all books, listen to the teachings on it, or we can talk about all we want. But that is not all we need to do. We need to make time to pray!! We need to make a date with the LORD. If that means setting your phone to remind you to pray, then that is what we need to do. If it means putting a note on the fridge, on the mirror, by your bed, then do it. Talking about it, reading about it, listening to others preach about it is not going to grow your faith like really getting down on your knees and praying for yourself.
Now I am I saying that we shouldn’t listen to others preach/teach it, read books about it?? NO!!! It will help us learn for about it. I love to listen Terri Pearsons preach/teach on it. I have books by Elizabeth George and have read some of them. But to build our own prayer life then we need to get on our knees and pray. We need to talk to the LORD and get to know HIS heart. We do that by spending time with HIM.
If you have someone that you love, you end time with them. Right?? Well if we love JESUS then we would make time for HIM. HE is the only thing that will get us through this life. So make a time and pray. If it seems boring to you then ask GOD to help you. Tell your flesh to shut up and pray. I have to do that.
Know if you miss day don’t bet yourself up over it. Ask GOD to forgive you and then start praying again. So let us this week to set a time everyday this week and pray.
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. – 1 Chronicles 16:11
