What according to you is prayer?
In her book “The Piccolo Book of Prayers,” Meryl Doney mentions that “Prayer is a part of life - when we pray we are talking to the person who created life, laughter, friends, music and everything that makes living great.”
Isn’t it amazing to be in conversation with the Lord of The Universe?
Prayer is a one-to-one conversation with God. So you speak and let God talk too.
And something more spectacular about this conversation is that God has time to listen to us.
He is never in a hurry. His Throne is open and accessible at all hours.
He is the creator of time & day. He controls it.
Psalm 46:1 describes God as our refuge and strength. Our God is able. He is always ready & present to help in trouble. Some Scripture versions use the word ‘ever-present’. It means
He is available 24x7, and I don’t need to take a prior appointment.
When you call on His name, you don’t hear an automated voice mention, “The person you are trying to reach is speaking to someone else. Please try again later.”
You can talk to God any time and every time. He will never get bored of you. On the contrary, he is longing to hear from you.
Have you ever tried to be a friend who is available round the clock?
At the beginning of your friendship, you may find it ‘Ok’. But sooner, this could turn exhausting. For example, getting interrupted right in the middle of your work or often feel under pressure to give excellent advice, so your friend thinks you are great or be a constant listening ear to your friend who wants to talk about their struggle and place their burden on you.
That’s hard work even though you have good intentions.
Gladly, that’s not the case with God.
Psalms 121:4 says He never sleeps nor slumbers. He never gets tired. So He doesn’t have to stop and take a rest or even go to sleep. He is full of energy.
I want to encourage you to talk to God daily. Journal your conversation with God.
