Prayer Reminder: Unthinking Prayers

How many times have you prayed for God to come and be with you or with a loved one?  I think one of the most repeated assurances by God in scripture is that “I am with you.  I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

We waste most of our time trying to get God to do something He has already done—or praying for God to do something He told us to do. —Jacquelyn K. Heasley

So change those requests to declarations of thanksgiving and praise for what He’s promised and done.

Often I do ask that those for whom I’m praying be keenly aware of His presence and experience His comfort and provision and peace and rest in their situation.

We can pray with utmost confidence the promises of God.
