The Privilege of Prayer

Whether you and I are praying about our humble needs or interceding about world affairs the power and might of the eternal and omnipotent Creator responds because he loves us.

Prayer is the most fundamental function of every believer. Prayer opens the floodgates of heaven. Prayer delivers the heart from harm. Prayer reveals the nature of deity. Prayer encounters eternity. How God answers my prayers is a mystery to me. It flabbergasts me how the almighty eternal and omnipotent Creator hears me when I clumsily babble on about my humble needs. Except that he loves me. What a privilege!

William Barclay said, “When we pray, remember: 1. The love of God who wants the best for us. 2. The wisdom of God that knows what is best for us. 3. The power of God that can accomplish it.” Prayer is more than simply falling to one’s knees once a day for a 10-minute hurried Our Father. Prayer is a moment-by-moment cognitive realisation that the God whom you love and who loves you is with you in every situation, good or bad.

Psalm 4:1
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

When describing the coming of the Holy Spirit, Jesus called him the counsellor. Holy Spirit is with you every moment of every day guiding your every step. He hears your every breath and graciously listens to your clumsy babbling on about your humble needs because he loves you.

A good friend of mine, Evangelist George Miller once said, “What prayer can do, God can do.” Whether you and I are praying about our humble needs or interceding about world affairs the power and might of the eternal and omnipotent Creator responds because he loves us.

God-tracking is praying.
