Paul often begins many of his letters with the affirmation that he is praying for and has been praying for those that are receiving the letter.
We see Jesus getting away often in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to pray.
If you read through the old Testament you see that many of the great patriarchs of the bible were men of prayer.
Prayer was such an important issue that the disciples made it a point to ask Jesus to teach them how to pray.
Since the beginning of creation men and women have been communicating with God. There is no better way to experience God than to sit down and have a conversation with him. For some this may seem a little awkward since God doesn’t exactly pull up a chair and sit down in the living room.
But rest assured, if you will but take a little time and begin sharing your heart with God, whether in silent meditation or in an audible voice, God will hear and he will reciprocate. You will begin to feel things and think things as God speaks directly to your spirit.
If you would like to read more about prayer we have previously written a series called 31 Days To A Better Prayer life that give practical ideas on cultivating this area of your spiritual journey. Simply click here or on the title above and be directed to the archives.
Start experiencing God today by doing nothing more than starting a conversation.
