Our prayer life is one of the most important parts of our journey with Christ. I have not always believed this. I didn’t grow up with this belief. Prayer, for most of my life, has been more like wishing someone good luck. You are thinking about them. You care. But the words do not really do anything.
As I align my beliefs on prayer with Scripture, I am coming to the conclusion that prayer is more than well wishes. Prayer changes things. No, God is not a distant Santa Claus waiting to grant our every wish. He is however, an attentive Father who longs for his children to talk to him and listen as well.
I have started to believe in prayer and to actually do it. My faith is growing. I still have a long way to go, but I am excited about all that God is doing.
How has your faith in prayer changed as you have read the Bible?
