I just wrote a post about prayer, but I have more to say.
How blessed are we to have the absolute PRIVILEGE of being able to speak to the Creator of the universe, any time we want to?!
Thinking of prayer as a privilege really puts it in perspective. In the Old Testament, they had to go into temples and special places just to talk to God. They had to take a bath before, and all this crazy stuff (I hope I'm not making this up...seems accurate).
Now, we can literally talk to God anytime, anywhere.
SO WHY DON'T WE?!?!
We have pride and think we can handle everything by ourselves.
We underestimate the power of prayer.
We get busy.
We don't know what to pray?
The Lord knows your heart. Talk to Him. Say anything. Tell Him how you feel, what's frustrating you, what makes you happy... Thank Him for what He's done. Ask for what you want. He can give you what you want if it's His will.
You don't need batteries or wifi or to take a bath first. You don't need to be perfect.
JUST PRAY! BECAUSE JESUS DIED SO THAT WE CAN!
Pray, and see how much better you feel, talking to God about things.
