Everyone prays at sometime in their lives, even those who claim to not believe say prayers, but when we pray are we praying out of selfish desire or are we praying because it opens our heart to God. I am not saying that praying for health or healing or food and clothing, but do prayers all revolve around me or me or something greater.

In a book by Walter Wangerin Jr called Whole Prayer, he talks about what Prayer is and one quote from the book caught my eye "Prayer will never rust for want of use." Everyone prays at sometime in their lives, even those who claim to not believe say prayers, but when we pray are we praying out of selfish desire or are we praying because it opens our heart to God. I am not saying that praying for health or healing or food and clothing, but do prayers all revolve around me or me or something greater.

In Genesis 25:21-30 we see how Issac and Rebekka Get there prayer answered to have a child although by now Rebekka is an old woman...

21 Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant. 22 The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, "Why is this happening to me?" So she went to inquire of the LORD.

23 The LORD said to her,
"Two nations are in your womb,
and two peoples from within you will be separated;
one people will be stronger than the other,
and the older will serve the younger."

24 When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb. 25 The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau. [a] 26 After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau's heel; so he was named Jacob. [b] Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.

27 The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents. 28 Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.

29 Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. 30 He said to Jacob, "Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I'm famished!" (That is why he was also called Edom. [c]

The Lord does answer our prayers, but not always in the way we think he should but the fact of the matter is he does want to hear from us, he wants us to rejoice when we are happy, and cry out to him when we are in need, and he wants us to truly desire that personal relationship of prayer.

Another quote that caught my eyes or another truth to more abtly put it is "The power of prayer is not in us that we speak, but in God that he listens." The Father of all the Earth, all creations takes the time to listen to us, he wants to hear our prayers, he wants that relationship with us. He is our Abba Daddy.

"He is our Abba Daddy". I like that. And I believe that prayer never rusts, especially if one does it every day (like Karla and I do). Same way with reading the Holy Word; we need that to jumpstart our day, particularly during severe weather season! Very well penned, Michelle; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
