There is a better way to Pray...
Let me ask you . . . When you’re wrestling over a tough decision, whom do you consult? When things start going south at work, where do you turn? When the kids drive you crazy, the bills pour in, the relationship starts to sour, or the test comes back positive—what do you do? A lot of us seek counsel from a friend. Even more of us consult the wisdom of Google. Some choose to read a book or listen to a podcast on the topic. Friend, there is nothing wrong with any of those options. But allow me to share with you the first thing you should do. Whatever your question, your pain, or your challenge . . .
Take it to God in prayer.
It’s not about formulas, rituals, impressive words, or flowing prose . . . prayer is about touching the heart of the Father! Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Wow! Did you catch the power in those phrases?
Help in time of need
All of those phrases are meant to describe your prayer life, and I want to see you living in the truth of that today and every day moving forward. If you’ll determine to go to God first when facing a decision, an obstacle, or a challenge, you’ll be amazed at what God will do.
