Proverbs 15:29 The Lord is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.
Without prayer there is no communication with God. Prayer is a must in our walk with God. Communication involves listening and responding. We listen to God by hearing, reading, and studying His word. I don't mean uttering a prayer every now and then during the day when a problem arises, or you need a way out. I mean to literally find a private place where you can focus and isolate yourself and pray. It should be a time where you can go and enjoy the presence of the Lord. Matthew 6:6 says..."But when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret…” When we pray sincerely, God hears us. He hears the prayer of the righteous.
Whatever you are going through, no matter how big or small, know that God will hear your prayer, and He will answer them, if it lines up with His word. Pray without ceasing the bible tells us. Even when your breakthrough comes, and it will come, continue to pray and thank God for what he has done. Prayer is a critical role in how we think of God, how we influence and relate to our families and how we relate to the world around us. Which in turn can make us more effective for kingdom work and will help keep our faith strong through trials and tribulations.
The goal we're after is an everyday walk of unbroken communion with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Remember, prayer is just one way to shut the door on the world and open the door to heaven. Get in your prayer closet today!
