Psalm 17:6 NIV, “I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.”
I didn’t always have a prayer life, even as a Christian. But over the last fifteen years or so, with the help of the Holy Spirit, I have really learned to develop my prayer life. Doing so has made a real difference in me and in my life. Prayer has also helped me to walk in love towards others. Prayer puts things in perspective for me, because it is a way of putting God first. It is also a reminder of His constant presence with me.
Prayer is one of the greatest gifts that God has given us. Having the opportunity to talk to Him anytime of day or night about anything is an honor and a privilege. Jesus made it possible for us to be able to come into the presence of God, and get to know Him intimately.
Prayer allows us to cast our cares upon God. It allows us to ask Him for what we need. Even more importantly, it allows us to hear His voice as He speaks to us about our lives. When we pray, God promises to give us His peace in exchange for our requests.
We may not always understand right away how God is working in lives, but through prayer, we can rest knowing He hears us, and will always do what is best for us.
