my concern is that people are just praying because they see everyone else doing it or they just pray in the time of need and want instead of all the time. i see prayer as committing yourself and time to Jesus everyday. i see prayer as a conversation with the lord. you have conversations with people everyday so why cant that be the same with God. another concern i have is that some people are just scared to pray like lord what is going to happen if i open this door well if you choose the right door and follow in his footsteps you wont have to worry and be afraid
Well, this is what i think about prayer, prayer is a communication with God and what it does it activate what you say in the spiritual realm. If that makes sense. So pretty much its a vital part of our Christianity/walk with Christ. Without it; it as though you're not expecting anything from God.
well i think you can expect much from God without praying like people can expect long life from God and have a problem with obeying my parents and not pray about it but i still expect God to give me long life or i expect God to tell me why this happen or why that happened but to pray about it. its like you wonder but never really ask him if you get what i mean
Hey Brianna! So...long life is not necessarily dependent on the promise from God that if you obey your parent you will live long? The promise is two-fold:
1. It will be well with you
2. You will live long
It is possible to live long and things don't go well with you.
Also...God gives rain on both those who pray and those who don't. there are just certain things that is a given whether you pray or not. But there are certain things that MUST come via prayer!
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.
