Sunday's Inspiration

 In my quiet time reading my Bible and devotional,
 I was touched by the author asking how do we pray. 
Is it a short fast spur of the moment prayer or a 
slow thoughtful intense prayer!   Both are important in our lives.
When something comes to our minds and we are troubled by it,
then maybe a quick prayer sent up is needed but when there's 
something in our lives that we can't manage or work out ourselves,
as sometimes we do this instead of praying for God's guidance. 

Then maybe more concentration and passion is needed. 

 Our Lord prayed! 
Mark 14:32
Jesus told his disciples to "sit here, while I shall pray"

"It came to pass in those days that (Jesus) went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God"
Luke 6:12

Jesus was both human and God,so He understands our pain and sufferings.  In verse 34-38 of  Mark 14, I was touched by these verses of how He felt human emotions. I was reminded of how we are to take everything concerning us to God in prayer.

In everything in our lives we are to glorify God in what we do, so how can we know how to do this without praying and seeking His will and His ways.

As we go through the Valley's and over the Mountains of our lives, let us lift our hearts and minds up in prayer constantly communicating with our Heavenly Father.

"Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without without wavering, for He is faithful that promised". Hebrews 10:23

The heart of prayer is prayer from the heart!

Have a Blessed Sunday!
