A Life of Prayer

Prayer is such an important part of our Christian walk, as we spend time communicating with our Heavenly Father! There’s more to it than just making our requests known. It’s a time of praise, confession, listening and seeking God’s will. There is no better place to be than in the center of God’s will.

This past week as we travelled across the country, we prayed daily for safe travels and strength for the journey. There are three vehicles and a 17-year-old cat in our caravan. One of the vehicles is more than twenty years old, and one is more than ten. We’re doing our part by regularly checking the fluids, but we are totally relying on God to keep the cars in good mechanical condition for our trip. The cat, well the Lord is looking after him too, as he has tolerated this trip better than we expected.

So much prayer is needed for our country. In all the places we stopped along the way there were major problems with homelessness and drug addictions. We saw young people sleeping in the entrances to shops. While in New Orleans, there were people in wheelchairs begging in the streets saying, “can you spare a quarter.” There was a man selling Mardi Gras beads who we later saw going into a liquor store to spend his earnings. Trash was piled up everywhere on the streets. Many of the sights just broke my heart. The only solution for these problems is prayer and the love of Jesus.

Remember, prayer changes things. Can you imagine what would happen if each of us prayed daily for our family and friends, our leaders and teachers, those in government authority, the weak and sick, and lastly, ourselves. When we take time to communicate with God on a regular basis, we begin to hear His voice and respond to His promptings. God’s goal is that none should perish. Trust and obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Seek God’s will in all your circumstances and He will make our path straight.
