It’s the most powerful tool we have, and it’s the tool we use the least. Prayer.
Do you pray faithfully? We all know we should. We all know how. If any of us are asked to pray in public, we know what words to say.
But are they real? Are you real? Do you really pray? Maybe you just started praying. Good! Keep it up. Maybe you’ve been praying faithfully every day for a couple years now. Good! You can improve! Maybe you’ve only prayed in front of other people, but have never had an alone time to pray. Good! Now’s the time to start!
Prayer works. How many times does God answer simple prayers? “God, give us a good day. Bless us as we go out. Keep us safe…” You get a lot of prayers answered that way!
The Bible is so simple. You can remember the Bible by remembering this acrostic: ASK: Ask, Seek and Knock. (Matt. 7:7) You’re troubled? ASK. You’re seeking an answer? ASK. You’re worried? ASK. You need guidance? ASK. You want God to work? ASK. You want to see a miracle? ASK.
