Just a little

I used to think I was unable to bring about change through prayer because I couldn’t pray like the saints of old. I couldn’t quote scripture chapter and verse so I believed that God couldn’t hear from me. I got that all wrong.

“Also, the Spirit helps us. We are very weak, but the Spirit helps us with our weakness. We don’t know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit himself speaks to God for us. He begs God for us, speaking to him with feelings too deep for words.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:26‬ ‭ERV‬‬

I thank God for the Holy Spirit that intercedes for me and helps me when I don’t have the words to say, the Holy Spirit that builds me up where I am torn down. The Holy Spirit that moves and lives in me.

I may not be able to pray the house down or sing 🎶 like an angel 👼 but I can trust and believe like the saints of old. I started thinking, if I believed the things my mind I was telling me it would mean that God couldn’t hear the prayers of the children, the prayers of the blind or deaf, the prayers of the mentally afflicted and that’s a lie.

“Anyone can come to you, and you will listen to their prayers.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭65:2‬ ‭ERV‬‬

I’m done feeling guilty for not memorizing the Bible or not knowing every single thing in it, that’s not a requirement for salvation. Jesus died for me and I will honor his sacrifice by believing in him and living my life filled with ❤️ love. I’ll keep praying 🙏🏽 with a sincere heart knowing he will hear me.

“Anyone can come to you, and you will listen to their prayers.”

I challenge you to get to know the love of Jesus for your self, it doesn’t take a lot, just a little.

“But the Master said, “You don’t need more faith. There is no ‘more’ or ‘less’ in faith. If you have a bare kernel of faith, say the size of a poppy seed, you could say to this sycamore tree, ‘Go jump in the lake,’ and it would do it.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭17:6‬ ‭MSG‬‬

“Sprinkled with the blood of Christ, our hearts have been made free from a guilty conscience, and our bodies have been washed with pure water. So come near to God with a sincere heart, full of confidence because of our faith in Christ.” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:22‬ ‭ERV‬‬
