Let Us Pray

Prayer is engaging Me in conversation with you, by initiating the conversation; it is not about reciting your list. Come to Me and, yes, with praise and thanksgiving, make your requests known, but don’t stop there and leave; let’s talk about what’s on your heart. I would like the opportunity to share My heart with you as well.

Have you ever stopped to consider that I enjoy talking to you? A conversation involves more than one person speaking.

Involve Me…

I do more than listen–

  • I speak
  • I direct
  • I teach
  • I encourage

and yes, I answer prayer.

Are you not more inclined to assist the needs of one who is your friend? When you build a friendship–relationship, a deep bond forms and you would go to great lengths to be of service to your friend.

I call you friend.

And I would, and do go to great lengths to be of service to you.

Will you reciprocate for me?

Let us discuss your heart, your life–your dreams. Let’s have a conversation, and we’ll talk about your needs and desires, your requests, your friends, and your friend’s requests and we’ll call it prayer.

And then, we’ll talk about My needs and desires and thoughts for your life, and plans, and we’ll call it conversation.

And

I’ll call  you Friend!

“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 4:2

“Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7

“He who loves purity of heart, and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend.” Proverbs 22:11

“and the scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness”; and  he was called the friend of God.” James 2:23

  1. Be it known that I am not an existentialist, but a Christian. There was an earlier comment that would seemingly indicate that I was, but I am not. I receive these messages from the Father God and His Son, Jesus Christ, as spoken to my heart and all scripture is from the Holy Bible. I apologize to my blogging community for any confusion I may have caused.
