“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” – Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)
A relationship of prayer is a process that is established and strengthened over many years. You have to develop an affinity for the living Christ by constantly acknowledging His holy presence in your everyday life. It is a process of growing closer to Christ. Only then will your prayer life become meaningful and fulfilling.
Prayer is not only talking to God, but also listening to Him. If we listen with our souls and our minds, God will talk to us through the Holy Spirit and reveal His plans for our lives. Prayer that results in obedience to His will transforms the act of praying into a pulsating and dynamic force in our spiritual lives.
Lord, I wish to glorify you forever, through Christ. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, help me to obey you in prayer. Amen.
