If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
Imagine getting a letter in the mail with a promise of a check for one million dollars if you wake up the next day at four o’ clock in the morning.
Or imagine getting an all-expense-paid trip of your choice if you volunteer at the local homeless shelter for a day. These imagined scenarios are within your reach if the conditions are met. If the conditions aren’t met, then these opportunities disappear.
Your prayer life is worth more than a million dollars or a free trip. Prayer has the potential of connecting your heart to the heart of God if you approach prayer in a spirit of humility, repentance, and transparency.
God hears your innermost prayer. He is tuned into you. He promises to heal you of your brokenness and forgive you of your sins.
Prayer is more than a task on a to-do list. It is a precious gift of intimacy between the God of the Universe and His image-bearers.
God wants to shower you with His love. He desires your good.
Open your heart to God in prayer; experience His supernatural love and acceptance so that your faith will be renewed and your joy will overflow.
Thank You for Your steadfast love and faithfulness.
Please give me a heart that earnestly seeks You in prayer.
Allow my love for You to grow and my prayer life to soar.
In Jesus’ Holy Name, I pray, Amen.
