Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. Mark 11:24
Have your prayers become rote? If we have a routine list, we don’t even have to think! Why do we talk to the Creator like that?
I have been so burdened by my prayer life lately. I have been praying since I was a little girl. When I was in high school, I was always the designated prayer in chapel (yes, we had chapel in school, it was wonderful). You would think I would be really good at it, but we have to remember not to give God our to do list, but give Him our all. We are His children. He wants to hear from us.
Prayer is an honor and a privilege. We get to talk with God - so let’s do just that. Come to Him knowing who He is and what He can do - ANYTHING! Ask Him and expect answers. Ask and be specific. I did not go to Him for a long time with my small things, because I thought He was too busy (you know, like running the world). He is interested in all you do, after all you are His child. Ask, knowing He loves you and wants the best for you. Do we get all we ask for - NO - we get what’s best for us.
