Let prayer be the key that opens and closes your day. Pray continually. – 1 Thessalonians 5:17
Prayer is worship, wherein we declare what we value the most. It is one of the best ways in the world to love God.
It is the highest expression of our dependence on God, where we ask for what we want.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to Him.”
Prayer, by nature, is requesting – not insisting nor clamoring. Friends don’t make demands. Ask .. and then wait.
Prayer is asking for understanding. It unites our fragmented hearts.
And in the quiet place of prayer, God comforts, instructs, and listens. There we learn to love and worship Him.
