You may need to read this: Just Pray!
Updated: Nov 8, 2019
Today's message is simple and straightforward: just pray!
There are days when challenges seem to come out of the air. There are days when each choice is difficult and frustrating. Some days you find that you just don't know which end is up. On days like that, one of the simplest prayers I pray starts something like this: Okay, Lord. I can’t do this without You.
I don't pray that prayer only because I’m facing difficulties, but because I realize that getting through the day (or life) without God is not wise.
Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we don’t know what to say or what to do. The best thing to do under those circumstances is to pray. And when you’re not sure what to pray, start with, “Lord, I can’t do this without You."
Yes, just pray!
The this I pray about could be something different every time.
Often, it's my day in general, the moments I don't anticipate, the moments I anticipate that may be challenging.
Occasionally, it’s a situation where I want to say or do the right thing—something that will be helpful or a blessing to someone else.
Every time I’m praying out loud with someone, before I speak a word, I pray that God will bless me with the words He wants me to speak. Those are some of the most powerful prayers that have come out of my mouth—and those words were not my own.
There's a saying I like. "If you have time to worry, you have time to pray."
So, whatever you're facing today, whether it's a challenge or a fear, just pray.
Somebody needed to hear this today. My prayer for that person is that their heart is soft enough to take my advice.
And, another thing—when you pray, He is listening. Then, it's your turn to listen to Him.
Be blessed, friends!
