Two Prayers | Print |  E-mail
Sunday, August 23 2015 06:30

Years ago a friend suggested there are only two prayers, “Praise You” and “Thank You!”  He believed God knew what we wanted and needed and our job consisted of offering God our worship and our gratitude.

I reached the conclusion from my practice of praying our “words" are not as important to God as we might think, but they are extremely important to us.  If God does “reside" in our hearts, then He knows the whole truth about us.  He knows how sincere we are, how self-centered or generous, how ungrateful or loving, how manipulative or altruistic.  God knows us better than we know ourselves and His Spirit “prays" for us accordingly.

However, our words, the ones we use in our prayers, give us an understanding and judgment for our intercessions and God's answers.  In other words, as we listen to what we say and what we ask of God, then look for His response, we will see both the faithfulness of God and the effectiveness of our prayers.

For Jesus, prayer seemed simply an ongoing conversation with His Father.  While He often slipped away to some out of the way spot to pray, He also prayed as he walked along or in His interactions with others.  For Jesus, prayer naturally flowed through the course of the day.

Let it be the same in our lives as well. 

1 I love the LORD because he hears my voice
and my prayer for mercy.
2 Because he bends down to listen,
I will pray as long as I have breath!  
Psalm 119: 1-2 (NLT)

Peace,

Brother Jay
