Prayer – why pray?

Prayer – Have you ever read Romans 8?Prayer

I find it a fantastic encouragement. The opening verse gives us that sense of belonging and comfort as we are reminded that condemnation has been laid aside for those washed with Christ’s blood. Having said that we still experience those times when things could be just that little bit better.

Then we are reminded of an amazing promise that God give us… Romans 8:28 “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

If we say God is sovereign, we must reckon that all things happen with His knowledge. The circumstances we are facing may not have been caused by God, but He also hasn’t prevented them either. He alone knows the reason and while our intention maybe to analyse the why, it is imperative we trust God’s sovereign rule.

Pray that you may know and enjoy His love and care for you with full assurance.

God’s sovereignty should be our great source of peace, joy and comfort. We all need to know that God is always with and for us…… Romans 8:38-39 “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:31 “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Therefore, seek the Lord in an attitude of prayer, giving thanks for all you have, praising Him for salvation, petitioning Him for all your needs, yet all the while recognising Him for His majesty and holiness.
