Living the Risen Life, Faithful in Prayer

It can be said that in the Bible, God reveals Himself to us; but in our prayers, God invites us to a relationship and fellowship.  How often we forego the very blessing of reading the Bible.  After all, God is taking the opportunity to tell us about Himself, His ways, and His will.

But when we do not pray, we forego the joy that comes from worship.  We forego the peace that comes from presenting our concerns before God and asking Him to come to our rescue.  We forego the wisdom He alone gives, and we forego the comfort of His love.

Has your prayer life become a dry ritual?  Or have you abandoned a vibrant prayer life in favor of a quick blessing before the food gets cold?  Come to your Father.  His arms are open to gather you and hold you close and to be in relationship with you.  Pull up a chair to the table of fellowship and invite Jesus–through prayer–to be near to you always.  That way you can be Living the Risen Life, Faithful in Prayer.
