Day 59: Prayer

Prayer is a powerful force in my life. I pray often throughout my day. We pray as a family. We pray over our meals. Sometimes I just pray to express my gratitude. Other times I pray to ask for the Lord's blessings upon me, my family, and those that I care about. God hears and answers my prayers. Through prayer I can come to know him. I can feel him near me.

Yesterday my Mom sent this scripture reference to me.

And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. (Isaiah 65:24)

The Lord loves us so much and is so anxious to hear from us and bless us.

I also love the words of Jesus found in the book of Matthew chapter 7.

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

I'm grateful for prayer.
