A call to a life of prayer


"For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as the LORD our God is to us, whenever we call upon him?Deuteronomy 4:7

Did you know that more things are accomplished through prayer in this world than you can imagine? At times we may be surprised to see how the Almighty Creator of heaven and earth responds to the simplest prayer. At other times we may be humbled and inspired to see how many wonderful things happen when God's faithful people pray.

Through prayer we reach the heart of God and gain access to the power of God. When we pray, we no longer depend on our own strength or ability or knowledge or resources. Rather, we open up our lives to let God work through us in wonderful, marvelous and even surprising ways. When we pray to God and tell Him our needs and ask for His blessing, we confess and acknowledge that He is the ultimate source of every good thing.

Jesus Himself spent much time in prayer, and he urges us to pray intensely, faithfully, unceasingly, in times of gratitude and in times of need. Prayer involves praise, confession, thanksgiving, and much more. God takes our prayers very seriously-so seriously that we sometimes may miss out on a blessing that He is ready and willing to give us but we do not receive it simply because we neglect to pray.

It will be foolish of us not to pray when God promises to hear us, help us, encourage us, protect us, strengthen us and guide us. The Bible contains many promises regarding prayer, encouragements to pray, and incentives to pray. The Bible and history demonstrate over and over again that things do change when people pray. God provided healing, rain, victory, wisdom, guidance, peace, protection, security, food and so much more when people prayed. The Bible also assures us that God hears our prayers and answers them. God is sincere when He invites us to pray and when He promises to answer our prayers. We should always pray humbly, honestly, and sincerely.

We as believers in Christ should be inspired to pray more earnestly, more sincerely, and more frequently, knowing that nothing is too big and nothing is too small to bring to our heavenly father in prayer. God is concerned about the hurts and needs we face in our daily life. In every experience of joy or sorrow, God is there. And in every situation of need or blessing, He is willing and eager to hear our prayers.

Praying allows us to participate in God's Works; it gives us Power over Evil. Prayer is How We Communicate with God, and God invites us and encourages us to pray, He hears us when we pray and graciously answers us when we pray. Prayer is an act of obedience. God calls us to pray and we must respond, therefore let us have an attitude of a prayer life as we walk on earth for His glory.
