Have You Prayed?

Do you have a yearning to pray? Then pray.

Do you sense that you do not know how? Definitely.

You want to talk to God, but you do not know what to say. Pray.

Are you afraid to spend time with the almighty? Pray anyway.

You feel you are unworthy to call out to God. Always.

What do I do with these emotions? Talk to God about them.

You may ask, “Will he hear me?” You can count on it. What if he does not answer? That’s a wrong thought. He is always answering for the best. Our problem is we do not know what is best. Our best request may not be the best in his eyes. God can see into the future. He knows what is best. Our problem is our short-term vision. We want immediate answers. But God has a far-reaching vision.

Being confused about how, where, when, or posture to pray are the least of our concerns. God cares about our hearts—hurting, aching, breaking, lonely, sad, angry, or even disappointed. It doesn’t make any difference. Pray.

All things do work together for good for the trusting child of God. Accepting all things is our responsibility. The Bible is true whether we believe it or not. Our unbelief is our problem, not his. We need to pray about accepting what God has for us, especially when we do not understand. When life’s happenings are beyond our comprehension, he has a door ready to be opened by the hand of faith. What’s behind the door is God’s gift. He is ready to do what is best.

Are you ready to spend some time with God? If so, find a quiet spot and start talking to God. He is ready to listen. Heavenly Father, here I come.

Pray constantly is God’s answer (I Thessalonians 5:17).
