Pray Simply, 24NOV
I think God wants us to pray without pause for so many reasons…
How can we even do His work if we aren’t taking instructions…
God also would rather us to pray in solitude instead of showmanship…
Personally, in this stage of my life, I think that we are gifted the time to pray for releasing our tears – and healing… and having the realization that He needs us to heal so that He can heal… God wants us all home with Him… and sent His only son to save us, scoop us back up, and take us home. We can’t get there if we don’t pray to be there. And God asks us to help others find the way too…
Jesus said pray simply, not rambling on, because God already knows what we are saying… God already knows what we need… so simply pray simply…
The tears though – the tears are best shed when we let down our guards… the closing of doors to pray is an opportunity to open our hearts to release the floodgates of His healing, to clog our ears with tears means we can only hear from within, He calls us from within. His spirit is within us.
The prayer to pray is the Lord’s prayer…
The processing comes with prayer…
We are the people God wants to hear from. Pray Simply and let Him take care of the rest.
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing,18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.”
