Seven Things I Learned About Prayer in 2017 (Part 7 of 7)

#7 God Invented Prayer Because He Loves Us

What would it be like if we didn’t have an open line to God?

Where would we go with the concerns of our heart?

I can’t imagine a life without prayer or a morning without being able to chat with my heavenly Father. For those of us who look forward to our one-on-one time with God each morning, the thought of not having it is unsettling.

But as I ponder this “what if,” I realize God allows us to have a prayer relationship with Him because of his great love for us. He opens a divine channel of communication because he longs to hear from us and desires to reveal His truth to us.

God  wants to be our confidante.

Zephaniah 3:17 says, “The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”

busier than God intended you to be

The Lord of Lords and Prince of Peace is always close by but if we want Him to draw near to us, we have to draw near to Him. (James 4:8).

Sometimes I believe we take this gift of prayer for granted. Occasionally, it’s important to take a step back and view this gift from a different perspective.

The Creator of the Universe is in our contacts. All we have to do is take the time to call on His name and enter His presence. Think of some of the most well-known people in the world that you see in the news. It’s like having the Queen of England or an actor like Hugh Jackman in your favorites, but to the nth degree.

And because of God’s love for you and me, through his Son, Jesus, he has an open door policy.

He’s never too tired.

He’s never too busy.

He’s not preoccupied with someone or something else.

When we call on Him, he drops everything to talk with us. Now that’s a love that surpasses all others.

I don’t know what I’d do without my daily interaction with my Abba Father. What about you? And if you haven’t embraced God’s love through a prayer relationship with Him, what is stopping you?

“I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me” (Proverbs 8:17).
