Pray WHAAAAAT!

How often do you talk (pray) to God. I been thinking about this a lot lately. But more about my relationship with God and how to deepen it. And I started to think of it as I would in terms of building a relationship with a person. You have to spend time with the person, talk with them, listen it has to be a mutual friendship both parties intentionally giving and receive. I started looking to the best example of building or having a relationship with God and that is his Son Jesus! He had the BEST relationship with his dad. THE BEST! And you know how often he talked to God, all the friggin’ time. He got up early, he stayed up late, he prayed before eating, he prayed before teaching, he prayed before miracles, he pray before going somewhere, he prayed before leaving somewhere. And if you noticed, that man was in perfect tune with God’s will and in perfect peace in doing it. I believe that is what Christ means when he says seek first the kingdom of God. Dont size up your problems by world standards, you are not of this world. Go to your father first, ask him about it and see what he would have you do. My favorite scripture is Philippians 4:6-7 “ Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Isn’t that a wonderful promise, if we bring our whole lives to him in pray we will have peace and that is all anyone could ever won’t. So today pray, every time you think about God pray, every time you think about anything but God pray and see if you can feel a bit of peace in your life today.
