Give Prayer a Try

It’s easy to think about it.

It’s rolls off the tongue when we talk about it.

It completely consumes us when we worry about it.

But the question is – are we PRAYING about it?

Sometimes life’s volume button appears to get stuck. Situations seem louder than the gentle whispers of our sweet Savior. It’s so easy to {accidentally} tune the truth out, isn’t it?

We can think until our head hurts, talk until we have no voice and worry until we make ourselves sick. And then we try praying.

Are we treating prayer as a last resort? When all else fails, try praying about it?

If this is the case, oh my sweet friend, we have this thing backwards.

The bible says to “pray without ceasing” {1 Thessalonians 5:17}. It also reminds us to trust in the Lord completely and not lean on our own understanding {Proverbs 3:5}.

We can’t do this on our own. We weren’t created to carry these weighty burdens. We were designed with a need that could only be filled by the saving grace of our Savior.

Before you waste another moment thinking, a breath talking or an anxious stomach worrying – pray. Take it to your knees in prayer.

Because no matter the situation, God has not forgotten your name. He hasn’t forgotten where you are and what you are facing today.

Rest in this truth, my friend. Prayer is such a powerful connection God has given us. There is power in our words. Use them for uplifting and encouraging yourself and others who so desperately need it.

You may not be able to change the situation, BUT the greatest thing you can do is pray through it!
