Biblical Reflections On Prayer #1
Ephesians 2:4-7; 3:16-20; Hebrews 4:14-16; John 15:1-17;
1 John 4:9-10; Philippians 4:6; Colossians 4:2; Matthew 6:5-14
You are GOD's Beloved! Neither let peoples opinions or expectations dictate you. Nor let your good works define you. Be secure in GOD's love for you in Christ.
Praying is not talking about GOD, but communing with GOD Himself.
We don't have to have everything in life in order before we pray. We are called to pray just as we are, in the here and now. GOD listens!
Prayer is not something we do to impress people. It is not an outlet to brag about our good works or display our eloquence. It is a discipline of becoming aware of GOD and laying ourself bare before Him with no pretensions.
Authenticity in prayer means we don't pray as we ought to be, but we pray as we are, raw and real. GOD can handle it.
Praying may or may not bring about the change we want to see in all our situations; but praying will always bring about change in us.
