The Bible says to pray without ceasing.
“See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.’
1 Thessalonians 5:15-18 KJV
As a very young Christian I found this to be tedious, having a constant structured dialogue among the everyday responsibility seemed so… well, impossible. I didn’t understand and often feared I was doing it all wrong. Prayer isn’t anything like that. Prayer brings you before the most loving and caring Father you will ever have.
Unfortunately, many of us have had abusive or absent fathers and find it hard to believe God to be anything different. Dear one, let me tell you, He is so different. I had that kind of a father, an abusive one, yet I have found God to be everything I yearned for. Please take this advice. You don’t want to miss out.
Prayer is the key that draws you closer to his heart. It is a place where affirmation, purpose, and forgiveness resides. It is a place where your heartfelt words unlock supernatural powers- for real!
Won’t you seek Him today? If we can believe in a doctor and his diagnosis, a pilot of a plane, or simply driving our cars on everyday missions and trust that everything will be okay, why is it so hard to believe in a God who cares more than anything for you?
His love is reckless for us.
