DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIRST DATE? YOU SAT ACROSS THE TABLE, OR NEXT TO EACH OTHER IN THE CAR AND THOUGHT IN YOUR HEAD, “WHAT AM I GOING TO SAY?”
When you start to learn how to pray……IT IS THE SAME THING!
AWKWARD, because you can pray everything you know in about 2.07 seconds and then……..the awkward silence……ummmmmmmm.
Mark 14:37, Then he returned and found the disciples asleep. He said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour?”
I remember the first time I determined to pray for 1 hour. I was a new believer and through the blood of Jesus gained access into the Holy of Holies (Heb 4:16-18) to speak to the Father. The Word told me that in the presence of the Father everything is available in Jesus’ name. The BLOOD gave me ACCESS.
I like to walk when I pray and within 5 minutes had prayed every prayer I knew and then kind of walked around not sure what to do……..lol!
Just like you and I built a relationship that started off awkward, the more you spent time with them and the more you talked the quicker time passed. In fact, some of you used to spend HOURS on the phone talking about NOTHING!!
When you are learning to pray it will be a bit awkward.
You will pray everything you know in 5 minutes.
STAY THE COURSE. DETERMINE TO NOT MOVE UNTIL YOU HAVE SPENT THAT TIME WITH JESUS, EVEN IF YOU HAVE PRAYED EVERYTHING YOU KNOW.
Over a short period of time you will grow in your relationship and talking to Jesus for an hour will be like nothing!
DO NOT FEEL INTIMIDATED ABOUT PRAYER!
Start your talk with Jesus today. Start today with 15 minutes of uninterrupted PRAYER (TALK, RELATIONSHIP).
