Devotion: What is Prayer? : I deal in hope

I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Devotion: What is Prayer?

Prayer is the key to an abundant, successful life of hope and joy. What is prayer? Prayer is communication with God. It isn’t meant to be one-way communication, as in we beg and hope He hears.

Jesus does care. Prayer is not just begging, but sharing our heart—waiting and listening for His answer. It is seeking guidance from a holy God not a sugar daddy, and being willing to follow where He leads. That guidance comes as we communicate with God in prayer and daily read His Word.

As we come to Him, He will share what we most need–forgiveness, salvation, hope and peace.

Don’t worry about anything; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. —Philippians 4:6-7
