Don't Stop Asking

Don't Stop Asking

 

… Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude. - Colossians 4:2 MSG 

Let’s face it, prayer can be difficult. In fact, Paul warns of this in 2 Corinthians 1:11 when he states, ‘labor with me through prayer..’ Paul is asking us to put in the physical and mental effort through prayer because he has seen the power and impact of prayer. Yet, he also sympathizes with the understanding that prayer may not come easy for most of us. 

I recently went through a small season where I noticed I wasn’t spending consistent time in prayer. I would listen to worship music throughout the day, watch sermons throughout the week, I was even diving into a Bible study; yet, I wasn’t diligently talking to God. When I look back at that season, even though I was doing things to feel close to Him, I wasn’t spending time with Him. Ouch… that’s hard to type. 

Not only is prayer spending relational time with our Creator, but it’s also a deep desire of God’s heart to hear from us! God doesn’t just ordain that we should be praying to Him, He delights in our asking. 

When we start to shift our perspective on prayer, we can begin to rejoice in communicating with the One who knows us better than anyone else. Let’s remind ourselves that prayer allows us to come to our Father and ask Him for our desires, but it’s also an opportunity for us to surrender our plans and our desires to pray His agenda and His desires. 

Pray diligently friends, your Father in Heaven is waiting, yearning, and desiring to hear your voice.
