Yesterday in church we were challenged by the days speaker
to think about prayer.
Everyone prays at some point in their lives.

If you are a believer who Loves the Lord then you would pray more often and pray with more intensity.
For relationship is built through this communication with God.
If Jesus thought it was important we should follow His example.
He was the Son of God. He was all power… all love…all mercy…and yet…He prayed.
For more power and more love and more mercy… For Jesus knew that prayer is God’s method for pouring out His Spirit upon us.
The speaker yesterday said:
“You cannot please God without prayer.”
In James 4:8 the word says: “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
That is a promise.
We draw near to Him by praying…and by setting aside time for building relationship with our God.
Just as we would with anyone else who is important to us.
We must realize it is a key element in our walk with the Lord.

The word is our example and all throughout the word of God there are lessons of prayer.
{Philippians 4:6: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God}
{Colossians 4:2-4: Devote yourself to prayer, being watchful and thankful}
{1 Thessalonians 5:17: Be joyful always; pray continually (pray without ceasing); give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus}
{Isaiah 62:6-7: I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.}

There is a theme to pray always, pray with a thankful heart, and pray without resting.
Always… ongoing… building relationship.
I pray we can encourage each other to press forward and into ‘our relationship’ with God.
