Short Thought on Prayer

“But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for Himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto Him.” Psalm 4:3

If ever there were a reason for you and I to pray, it would be that Jesus told us to pray (see Luke 18:1b). Yet you may wonder why you need to talk to God about your needs since “your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him” (Matthew 6:8).

Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance; it is laying hold of His willingness. It is part of God’s grand scheme that we have been given the privilege to cooperate with God in prayer.

Ephesians 6:18 tells us to pray “in the Spirit.” Any prayer that the Holy Spirit lays upon your heart will be answered, because the prayer that gets to heaven is the prayer that starts in heaven. We just close the circuit.
