I love studying God‘s word, but six years ago, even as a long-standing believer, I was fearful to pray. I was afraid of getting it wrong. When I finally realized that prayer is really just an intimate conversation between my creator and me, the one that knows my heart better than anyone (even me), the one I’m completely exposed to, the one that is totally OK with me messing up my words. I became less fearful of messing up. Prayer became my love language.
Are you leaning in, seeking and trusting God today? Are you trusting him at his word? Taking all your worries and fears to him in prayer?
Did you know that Gods word does not return to Him void? It promises to accomplish everything he sends it out to do.
Whether scripture is convicting your heart today, or encouraging your heart today, you have been given something to pray about.
Maybe today you need to repent of something that has taken God‘s place in your life. Be that social media, a career, your children, your boyfriend, even your husband. All of these things can be good things but they can also be idols. What are you pursuing? Anything that takes you away from intimacy with God is an Idol.
Return to your first love. Know that he hears us when we pray. Pray His word if you struggle with your own words!
A friend of mine once said to me “prayer is like oil and vinegar. It’s usually the vinegar that flows out first but if you pour out yourself long enough in prayer to God eventually the oil will flow.”
She was right.
If prayer feels like a foreign language… start practising so that you become fluent in it! ♥️
