What Is Prayer?

Today's Word: Aug 15, 2022

When we pray, something supernatural occurs. Prayer is the most powerful posture we can take in this earthly realm. When we pray, we connect the strongest part of ourselves with the strongest force in the universe--the Spirit of God. When we open ourselves to Him, God's Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are His children. Prayer, then, is simply talking to our Father. When you come to God with a childlike heart, there's no right or wrong way to pray. The important part is that you do it. Rather than think you need to commit to an hour of prayer a day, start with, "Every day I'm going to pray five minutes," then add on to it.

Remember, prayer is a privilege. Without Jesus, we wouldn't be able to come directly to God. We wouldn't be able to make our requests known to Him. We wouldn't be able to know peace that passes understanding. Make prayer a priority. Put Him first and draw strength from the wonderful privilege we have in Him.
