“The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know.”
1 Timothy 2:1-2 MSG
Thinking about prayer and praying is not the same thing.
Talking about prayer and praying is not the same thing.
Prayer doesn’t have to be eloquent to be powerful or lengthy to have consequence.
You just need to pray. Every way you know how, for everyone you know. It isn’t a test to pass or a class to take, it is prayer. There is no wrong way to pray, just pray.
The power of prayer is that it connects you with a powerful God who loves you so much that he took care of all that hinders you from connecting to him. Every fear, doubt, stumble, mistake, misstep or mindset that separates you from God, Jesus took on the cross. Every judgement, injustice, neglect or wrong done to you by others, Jesus took on the cross. This is why you can be unhindered in prayer for others and honest in prayer for yourself.
Let no excuse stop you today from getting in a safe quiet place and praying, even for five minutes.
