I trust you are all enjoying your January… Family, friends, sun, sand, surf, BBQs and long summer nights…
Many of us have some extra time as it’s the holiday season. So, I thought at the beginning of Twenty21, it is good to remind us about our relationship with God through prayer… I’m sure we all know how vital prayer is in our relationship with Jesus.
Imagine if you met a Christian friend on the platform of a train station and you only had 1-2 minutes before they boarded their train and they asked you “what do you think is most important in cultivating your relationship with Christ”.
What would you answer?
I realize that’s all very well, but how do we keep up a sustainable, vibrant prayer life? In the gospel of Luke (Luke 11:1-4 & Matt 6:7-15), the disciples asked Jesus, how do we pray?
The answer … we know it as the Lord’s prayer. It covers everything in life! I’ve found it a fantastic, helpful guide, which keeps me focused.
Allow me to share some powerful quotes that I’ve found inspiring and encouraging about prayer. As you read this, which ones speak to you?
Next week I’ll send out a prayer guide that I’ve used for the last 30 years.
It’s helped me hugely to continue in prayer month after month, year in and year out.
I know it’s easy to begin in prayer, but challenging to sustain a vibrant, life giving, growing prayer life.
Have a great January…catch you next week.
