I had the opportunity to sit in on the women’s Bible study this week.
The subject was on prayer. So I thought about a few things regarding prayer.
The first question I would like to ask is: What is prayer?
Answer: It is talking to God. It is a conversation with God and it is time spent in a relationship with Him.
God loves you and me. God also wants to meet our needs. Please remember prayer is not a shopping list of our wants. We need to separate our wants and needs. I have been reading a book on prayer its title is: The 21 most Effective Prayers Collection by Dave Earley.
He writes the following on prayer. “Prayer is the way we defeat the Devil. (James 4:7)
Prayer is the way you acquire wisdom (1:5)
Prayer is the way a backslider is restored. James (5:16-20)”

It is my prayer and hope that we will honor God by praying to Him. God will be found by those who truly seek him.
Have blessed day
