“From inside the fish, Jonah prayed to the Lord his God.”    Jonah 2:1 NIV

When is the best time to pray?

– when you have run from God.

– when you have been disobedient and rebellious.

– when you have done your own thing, your way and find yourself in the center of a  devastating storm.

– when you realize that God is BIGGER than your fear and STRONGER than the storm.

– when you are in the very center of something that is far bigger than you and you have no power to get out of it.

– when you are ready to let go of your preconceived ideas of what God is calling you to and willing to serve wherever you are, with whatever God has given you, right now. 

When is the best time to pray?

NOW… whatever your “now” looks like.

What’s keeping you from prayer? 

What have you been running from? 

What is Jesus asking you to do right now? 

First

  

The first thing I want you to do is pray. (‭1 Timothy‬ ‭2‬:‭1-3‬ MSG)

Before you do anything about it, pray.

Pray first.

Not after your have worried yourself sick.

Not after you have gone around and gotten everyone’s opinion.

Not after you have tried and failed.

But first.

Before you have that conversation.

Before you jump to the next conclusion.

Before you make the ultimatum.

Pray.

Pour your heart out to God and ask Him to pour His heart into you.
