How many times have we said, “I’ll pray for you!” and then, we don’t. It has happened to me a lot.
Prayer works though. Like, God hears us and answers. He really does hear us! So, why is it so hard for us to spend at least a minute in prayer?
I know a lot of us like to post on Facebook about a certain event that happened an announce that we are praying for it, heck, I do that! But, are we actually praying, or are we still on Facebook looking at the other posts saying that their praying for it too?
Prayer works. Use it.
And maybe I’m talking about myself only. If I am and you all can teach me how you pray and how you have time to pray than that would be cool.
But, today I want to challenge you and myself that when we are going to pray for something, we do. Because although God can see what we post on Facebook and He hears us when we say we’ll pray for a person, that is not a prayer. That is not spending time with Christ asking Him for help.
I want to give you a few tips on how and where you an pray.
-Pray like you are talking with your best friend. It doesn’t have to be proper, He knows our hearts and He just wants us to be real with Him.
-Pray anywhere. In your car (no crashes, please leave your eyes open), in your bedroom, anywhere. Literally, you can talk to God anywere.
A few years ago I hear this tip, talk in front of an empty chair, imagine God sitting there. It may sound funny, but if you aren’t praying because you can’t see God, try it.
Prayer strengthens our faith. Prayer changes the world. My prayer for all of you today is that you would use prayer. Trust that God is hearing your prayers. I can tell you He 100% is hearing your prayers.
