Prayer

Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath.


Psalm 116:2 NLT


The definition of prayer is a solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God or an object of worship. 


God is all about relationships and progress. We can be absolutely sure that our prayers are not just spoken words, but actually being heard and given attention to. God hears our prayers and he knows our heart. One of the many awesome things about God is that he is always there to listen. God never shames or never condemns us. There is nothing you can't pray about or tell God. 


The awesome thing about prayer is you can pray anywhere at anytime! I love to pray while exercising or sometimes I even pray in the shower! You don't need a fancy alter or a sacred place to pray! Just remember when you pray have faith and believe! 


Prayer is not just about everything you want either. Sometimes people get so caught up in prayer time being all about them. Remember to pray for other people also! I think a lot of people forget that part. Also pray and give thanks to God! 

One of my favorite quotes by Martin Luther is: 

"To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing. "

As Christians to have that personal relationship with God we must pray❤

  1. I pray from the time my eyes open in the morning to the time I say good night Jesus and close them. If you have a relationship with Jesus then you will talk to him all day long because HE is your everything! Great devotional Mandy! PRAYER it is a beautiful thing :)
