Most people consider prayer to be like a drive-through window. It’s where they pull up and don’t have time to stay, but they want to make sure their order gets in and they get just what they want before they rush away. They pull up to heaven, and God says, “Welcome to McHeaven. May I take your order, please?” As sad as that sounds, that’s what a lot of people think about prayer.
The first thing they...and we…need to know about prayer is that prayer is not a monologue; prayer is a dialogue. Prayer is not where I speak, and God listens. It’s where God and I have a conversation. Not only do I get the opportunity to speak to Him, but God wants to speak to me. Prayer is how we invite the supernatural presence of the Almighty to invade our life. Prayer is where we take time to learn how God effectively communicates with us! Prayer is where we get to hear exciting things when we stop talking and start listening to the King of kings and the Lord of lords. We get to talk to the Commander in Chief and ask Him what He wants us to do here on this earth, so we can wage spiritual warfare and overcome the enemy.
““Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.”
Isaiah 1:18 NKJV
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing privilege of seeking Your face and coming before Your throne as Your child. I commit myself to listening to Your voice and doing Your will as You’ve given it in Your Word in Jesus’ name. Amen!
