I pray because…

My Pondering

Amen to that quote by Mr. Lewis. And Amen and Hallelujah to Scripture. Prayer is a mysterious thing as it is 100% spiritual while we are at best ‘hybrid’ beings.

Yes, prayer 🙏 is mostly about the prayee changing, God certainly doesn’t need any changing, but sometimes, always if in accord with His will, He graciously changes our circumstances and other people may be blessed because we pray 🙏 earnestly.

Therefore confess your sins to each other
and pray for each other so that you may be healed.
The prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail.

James 5:16

I personally have plenty of room to grow in regard to prayer. I presume you too. Let’s be thankful and assured that God knows our predicaments and sent us the Paraclete to assist our poor souls.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.
For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words.

Romans 8:26

One thing I know for sure is that it’s wise to make prayer both a habit and lifestyle. It should be like an ongoing conversation with our Maker.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Philippians 4:6
