Grateful 43 – Things about Prayer

. at . 2 comments

I think of prayer as a super power I can have. Only the power does not come from me, it comes from God. And in order for me to access this superpower, I need to be in a relationship with God. Now let me tell you why I am grateful 4  3 things about prayer.

ONE. It is a way I get to know God’s will for my life. God wants to talk to me. He wants me to know the plan He has for me. And one way I get to know His will is by praying. However, in order for me to hear God, I will need to schedule time in my days to be quiet before Him. Read this post, 14 Ways to Determine God’s Will,  this post, 3 Conditions to Finding God’s Will, and this post, Seven Ways to Help Your Child Hear God’s VOICEfor other ways to hear and determine God’s will.

TWO. I receive perseverance, power and the ability to endure my trials and tribulations. We will have tribulations in this world. This word affliction/tribulation (in the Bible, Romans 12:12) has the connotation of deep, serious trouble. It can also be “an internal pressure that causes someone to feel confined, restricted without options or any way of escape.” Prayer helps me to overcome and even be victorious.

THREE. Prayer changes events and people. These changes are not just recorded in the Bible. I have seen and heard of the following happening because of prayer: conquered elements, healed diseased, and restored life (emotionally, physically and spiritually).

Your Turn . . . What is your attitude to prayer? . . . Why are you grateful for prayer?

I am writing a gratitude series titled Grateful 43. I will do this for 43 days. And I will write three things for which I am grateful 4 each topic. Do you see the play on the words 43 and FOR THREE?  Go here for the 43 Days of Gratitude JOURNAL Prompts
