Romans 12:12 ‘Be happy in your hope, stand your ground when you are in trouble and devote yourselves to prayer’
Good morning, afternoon, evening! I do not know what time you are reading this so hello to you whatever time you happen to stumble across this blog. I have thought about prayer for the past couple of days: what does it mean to pray? Why do it? Is prayer only for Christians? I believe that prayer is being in conversation with God. I sincerely believe that we can ask God to guide, instruct, help and bless us in many ways. When I have something on my mind be it good or bad, I like to ask God in and help me to either accept a blessing as I should to make the most of the opportunity or strengthen me through my troubles.
In the media we often see that people pray only when something goes wrong. In a cry of desperation they send prayers to ‘a creator’. It is interesting to see that in their lowest moments people just want to believe in anything/ something more and beyond their present distress. However to get the most of life wouldn’t it seem wise to invite the creator into your life . When I think of all that goes on in the world both good and evil, it is too much for my mind to comprehend. In order to have peace and a sense of purpose wouldn’t it be good to communicate with an all-knowing and all-seeing God. I am a Christian and so I believe that Jesus is the son of God and the only true Saviour. That belief has shed so much light and hope in my life that I cannot imagine a day going by without knowing that He holds my world in His hands; that there is a purpose, a very good reason for my being.
Prayer keeps me in touch with who He (God) is and who I am. People are so confused and everyone is searching for meaning, therefore going to another human to find peace and purpose sometimes helps but can never be enough.
Take a moment to think about what or who your hope is in today.
