“You better pray about it.” When I was a babe in Christ I was tired of hearing this. My mind thought TEACH ME.
So often we expect people to know how to pray. When I was younger they made prayer spooky. speaking in a language I could NOT understand. We make prayer too complicated and hard to understand. Pray is simply communicated with God. No need to lead Greek or Hebrew, He is bilingual.
How often are we praying according to The Spirit? Praying as God would have us to pray. That’s hard times, especially when you have to pray protection over those who hurt you
Some might ask how to do that. Please read the following verses and tell me what you think:
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. “This, then, is how you should pray: “ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. ’ For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 6:5-15 NIV)
I’m not saying God doesn’t enjoy our conversation, just think is it conversation you would enjoy?
Love, peace and hugs,
