As Christians, we are bond servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. We serve Him because we love Him. Our prayers should not be a “to do” list for God. Good morning, God, here is what I need for You to do for me today. Got it? Good, I will talk to You again soon, maybe tomorrow. That is not prayer, my friend, that is what you might say to your employees, but not to God. Is He interested in your tiniest need? Yes, He is, but He is also the King of Kings. He deserves our respect. As this verse from Psalms says: “Come and talk with me”, with me not to me. After you have talked, be silent and let God speak to you. He already knows your needs and He already knows His answer. He doesn’t need to think about it overnight. Just rest in His arms for a few minutes and God’s Holy Spirit will not only give you the answer but will help you understand the answer.
31 But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Your thoughts on prayer are excellent, Wally. Thank you.
