As most of you know prayer is near and dear to my heart. At some point in time I'm sure you have heard the phrase, "the power of prayer." These words are so familiar, yet sometimes we forget what they mean. Prayer is a powerful tool for communicating with our Creator. It is an opportunity to commune with the giver of all things good. Prayer helps us find strength for today and hope for our tomorrows. Prayer isn't a thing to be taken lightly or to be used infrequently.
Is prayer an integral part of your life? Your family's life? Or, is it a hit or miss habit? Are you one to "pray without ceasing," or is your prayer life an afterthought? Are you one to regularly honor God in the solitude of the early morning hours, or do you bow your head only when others are watching?
The quality of your spiritual life will be in direct proportion to the quality of your prayer life. Prayer changes things, and it changes you. Today, instead of turning things over in your mind, why not turn them over to God in prayer? Instead of worrying about your next decision, ask God to lead the way. Don't limit your prayers to meals or to bedtime. Pray constantly about things great and small. God is listening, and He wants to hear from you. I guarantee it!
