Prayer

Prayer

9.15.13
I am "pondering" on the power of prayer. Not only as I pray for others and see the the amazing hand of God move with healing and restoring, providing, comforting but also as I receive prayer for myself.
Prayer creates an intimacy with Christ - a very personal one on one. How grateful I am that the Holy Spirit searches the heart and mind of man and brings it truthfully to the Throne of God the Father. He does it so much better than mankind can - without all the justifications, reasons, emotions. No begging, no bargaining, no deals!  This is true vision - spiritual eyes. Prayer changes the person so the circumstances and situations can change for our good.
Stop. Allow and accept change. This change takes us out of our own perception to 'see' it all through God's perception, through His plan. I just wonder how much time, energy, and emotions we have to muddle through before we stop, pray, and listen.  We have all His Promises and He never breaks one of them.....  
We should have a continual open and running conversation of prayer between our heart and God's ear on a daily basis. We should state our need and then "be still and know that He is God."  After all, prayer should be a two-way conversation with God - knowing when to speak and when to listen.................  Our God desires to walk with us and to talk with us.
How is your prayer life? Are you doing all the talking? Are you begging or bargaining or dealing? Do you listen?
