Pray About Everything


 

Philippians 4:6, 7

 

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God,” Philippians 4:6.

 

“Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” ( 1 Thess. 5:17, 18).

 

 

 

God created mankind in His image that they might communicate and fellow-ship with Him. Many references in the Scriptures imply that we are to live prayerfully in daily life, mentally communicating with God as a lifestyle. There was a man who finally attended church with his wife and heard the preacher promise that, if we pray to God, He hears us. The next week he angrily confronted the preacher because he had left his headlights on at a football game and his car would not start. He had prayed and prayed for God to start the car with no result. The preacher asked him if he prayed to God at least once a day. He said, “No.” “Once a week?” “No.” “Once a month?” “No.” “That’s your problem. God heard your prayer; He just didn’t recognize your voice.”

 

How many Christians, going about their lives, keep God in the closet? Then, when something traumatic occurs, and they run out of resources, as a last resort, they consult God and even blame Him for picking on them. “What have I done to deserve this”? When a Christian stays in constant fellowship with his Creator, his life is aimed in the right direction. Then the believer makes decisions that are anointed by the Holy Spirit because he is seeking God’s will in his daily life.

 

 

JUST SAYING

 

Time spent worrying is time wasted.
