Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Focus on prayer

on March 20, 2013

Psalm 42: 1-2, 8  “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? By day the Lord directs his love,  at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.”

Praying to our God allows us to communicate with Him and grow closer to Him. God wants us to have a personal relationship with Him, and to do so, we need to be willing, focused, and searching for Him in prayer. Prayer enables us to seek His desires and His strength, to enable us to be more like Christ. It’s not a way to request something from Him or hope things will change our way. But rather to accept God’s will for what will happen in our lives, His way. It’s about changing ourselves, changing our hearts, and Him directing His love and guidance through the discipline of prayer.

So when you pray, focus on Him and His desires, and ask for strength, guidance, hope, and peace. He is there for you!
