Pray

We have so many battles going on in America today 
That we should be a people of prayer .
Our government needs prayer. Our leaders need prayer
Our schools need prayer. Our youth need prayer.
Our families  need our prayers.  
 Billy Graham
With the election just around the corner, it is important for God’s children to remember to pray. God did not “suggest” we pray, He commands it!  It should not have to be a command. Which one of us, If given the opportunity, would want to speak with the President of the United States?  I bet all of us would be excited to be given that chance.  How much more excited we should be to speak with the Creator of the Universe!
If you have children you know that, often, you have to tell them to do one thing they need to do over and over again. God did the same for us.  When searching for the word “pray” at BibleGateway.com there are 367 results. It looks like God thought it may be important. 
Christ spent much of his time on earth in prayer to His Father. Have you thought about that?  He was with the Father eternally, before the world began. He spent a short 33 years in human form on earth. When He rose again He went to be with the Father eternally. Why did He spend so much time on earth in prayer?  Do you think it was because he HAD to, or because he WANTED to?
Have you ever been in love?  Do you remember when you first loved someone?  All you wanted to do was talk to that person. Your conversation to others was all about the one you love. That is how our Heavenly Father feels about us!  No one else has ever, can ever or will ever love you as much as He does. Talk to him!
 
1 Thessalonians  5:17 – pray without ceasing
