Why pray and not expect a reply? (204)
In my forty year faith journey, hardly a day has gone by when I haven’t prayed. Yet in all my prayers there has been innumerable times my prayers were out of habit and not out of expectation.
The older I get the more I pray on purpose. My hope is to be in synch with my creator rather than attempt to bend His will to agree with my phobias.
There is a promise that Jesus gives if we choose to believe. He said God would answer every prayer according to His will.
Prayer is more than a life long wish list, prayer is about changing the way we view the world and discovering God’s view.
Prayer opens our eyes to all things possible.
Prayer frees us from the crippling grip of phobia.
Prayer unlocks our thoughts to the way God thinks.
Like me, can I encourage you to pray with the intention of learning a new way of living and thinking.
Prayer is a learned art of communicating. Just like a child learns to speak, let your prayers be innocent and hopeful.
God is always waiting to communicate with you if you are open to listen.
Why pray if you don’t expect an answer?. Prayer is a dialogue not a monologue.
If you find yourself in a bind, I pray your eyes be open to all the possibilities life has to offer. I especially pray that you discover the joy in having communion with the Living God.
