Proverbs of a 40 yr. old man

You need prayer. Prayer isn’t a ritual that depends on closing our eyes and putting on holy faces. We don’t have to kneel or sit. We can pray while walking, driving, or working. God responds to a two-word cry for help in the middle of a busy afternoon, just like He does to a focused prayer time after reading Scripture in the morning. Praying doesn’t have to be complicated. God delights in any simple words we offer Him. If you are feeling distant and far away from God, it's time to pray. If you are facing a difficult trial and situation, it's time to pray. If you need peace in your life and are in constant anxiety, it's time to pray. If you are struggling to maintain a healthy and vibrant prayer life, you are not alone.  We are called as Christians to pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. To stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all believers everywhere. This is something we must all grow in and mature in. Our prayer life is vital to our faith in Christ. Daily we must be in prayer to conform to His Will for our lives. You need prayer to know God more. As a Father in Heaven, as Jesus as LORD of our lives, and Holy Spirit bonding with Him in our hearts and minds with groans we could never express to God without Him. You need prayer to grow in your thankfulness to God and keep pride from your heart. You need prayer so you can memorize Scripture, the Holy Spirit will bring it back to your remembrance. You need prayer for forgiveness, asking God to forgive you so that you can extend that grace to others in your life. Lastly, you need prayer to learn how to ask God for what you need. Our prayers are amiss because we ask with wrong motives, asking only what will give us pleasure. For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
