When You Pray

Whenupray is not just the name of my blog. When you pray to the Lord it should be with great expectation. I pray to God about things that most people would consider stupid, or crazy. I sometimes question why I bother God with all my stuff and then I remember he wants me to. What concerns me concerns him.

God our Father told us that we should bring everything to him in prayer. Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have. And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭6-7‬ ERV)
Never stop praying. (‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭17‬ ERV)
Ps 34:10……….”…those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.”
Eph 3:20……….”…(God) is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us…”
I am not asking you to take my word on how this thing works and that is why I showed you what God said about it. I ask that you get it deep down in your spirit because it is the key. A steady, consistent prayer life allows you to stand in the face of tragedy. A steady prayer life allows you to trust even when you don’t understand, it allows you to have peace in the middle of a mess, it allows you to live free from guilt and condemnation. I can tell you that if I stay prayed up, my life is exponentially more rewarding.

The last thing I will say is that when you pray, believe it.
You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. (‭James‬ ‭4‬:‭2-3‬ NLT)
