“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1Thess. 5:16-18 NIV)
When I was a small child I learned to pray with my family at our family Bible readings that we often shared together. We also prayed at our table at meal time.
I also learned about praying at the church my sister & I attended in Sunday School, Vacation Bible School & in church services.
It was only as I grew older & started maturing a bit in the Lord that I realized that there are so many places to talk to God, to pray.
Prayer begins in our hearts. I have since learned as a child to be ever so grateful that I can find a place to pray anywhere I am, because anywhere I am… God is there too.
I don’t have to search for my Heavenly Father because He lives in me.
Prayers have been in my heart & on my lips in a hospital room sitting with a dying friend, on a walking trail enjoying God’s creation, in my car & even flying in a jet.
How wonderful to know that I am not limited as to where I can talk with my precious Lord & Saviour. He is constantly by me, waiting to hear my voice, & He is there for you too dear friends.
Let us all praise His name & thank Him for always being available for us. Our best friend, our counselor & our loving Saviour.
