Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend

“A Shot of Expresso or Prayer”

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 

We all need peace in our hectic and chaotic life. The solution in the Bible is prayer. Some depend on a shot of espresso, another on a round of golf, or for others it might even be a quart of ice cream. But prayer is so much better, more powerful, and more effective in handling our anxiety. 

Today, let’s really pray; not the superficial, guilt driven, garden variety kind of prayer, but vine to branch connection prayer. Today, find the best time and place to pray. Find a time when you are most alert and awake, as well as a place where you will not be distracted.  It may be a place that inspires you to pray, or even a remote park bench during lunch time. During this special time, come before the Lord with a soft and honest heart. 

It is not His purpose to make you suffer through lifeless prayer. He will meet with you. As a matter of fact, He is waiting for you. The King of Kings and the Lord of Lords is waiting for you.

Prayer: Lord, help me to reflect and walk out the revelations You gave me during my time with You today.  Help me to pray unto You because I truly desire to be near You and to hear Your heartbeat. Amen.

Bible Reading for Today: Isaiah 5-6
