“More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.” (Alfred, Lord Tennyson)

 

There’s plenty about life that can disturb us—dreary overcast Mondays, post-holiday depression, anxiety about what the new year may bring, health concerns, family squabbles, moral dilemmas. But we will not disintegrate emotionally if we habitually share with our Father what bothers us. Scripture reassures us we can give all our worries and cares to God, since He cares about us (1 Peter 5:7).

 

When we need to talk to God, He is ready to listen.

 

Jesus Christ, our Great High Priest, through his perfect sacrifice on the cross, has made it possible for us to have a standing appointment with God. We do not have to approach our Maker with fearful, low-hung head. Heaven’s throne is mercy, not marble, so we can pray with confidence.

 

On the other hand, we should never casually stroll into God’s Presence—prayer is an audience with the King, so we must advance reverently.

 

And when we pray, we should keep in mind we’ll never get near God’s heart by thoughtless chatter and endless babble. Flippancy merely vocalizes unheard soliloquies; wordy repetition is unnecessary.

 

Monologue does not enhance our friendship with God. God invites us to enjoy heartfelt conversation with Him.

 

When we are ready to listen, God wants to talk with us. 

 

“I will meet with you there and talk with you from above the atonement cover between the gold cherubim that hover over the Ark of the Covenant.” (Exodus 25:22 NLT)
