If you are unhappy, prayer can lift you into a new lightness of heart, joy, and happiness.
There is a sense of calmness after I pray and I know that I have laid it all out there to God and can rest in that knowing. I trust that God can handle my problems. Even when sometimes it just feels like too much. God can handle it.
Praying isn’t only praying for what you want or think you even need. It’s about being one with God. Laying down your life to Him, the One who holds it all.
If you are plagued with resentment and bitterness regarding a person or situation, prayer can bring a new understanding to you that will fill you with new peace and great love.
Maybe you are going through a time of life where you are fearful. Prayer can transform you into a person of great courage.
I am sure there are things that you have held onto and have not spoken to another soul about. Maybe you haven’t even prayed because you’re too scared to bring it to God even.
I have good news. God’s grace has you. He loves you where you are right now. He loves your heart, soul and mind. Speak to your Father. He will listen and care in such a deep way and can help take away whatever it is that you have been carrying.
Moses prayed in his own way, and he received sufficient guidance to lead the enslaved Israelites into the Promised Land. Joseph prayed in his way, and he received wisdom and patience and understanding that brought great success and happiness to him and to all those about him. Paul prayed in his way, and he received great illumination that changed his life and moved the world. Jesus prayed in His way and miracles of healing and blessing became a daily occurrence.
Pray in your way. You will see that your life will be transformed and blessed.
Do not be ashamed to pray. Do not feel guilty because you have prayed infrequently before. Begin to pray now in your own way, in your own time, in your own place of life, and see what prayer can do for you. Don’t forget that your relationship with Jesus looks different and is set apart from other peoples relationship. Consider that special! You have your own place in the hands of the Almighty God.
