Pray Bigger Prayers
Here’s a nugget I took away from church this weekend.
It’s sort of like cleaning, or doing yard work around the house. The process of cleaning isn’t enjoyable, but having things clean makes the cleaning worth it. So it is with prayer. The result of praying makes the process of prayer more exciting.
This isn’t to say communing with God isn’t enjoyable, but we need to humble ourselves sometimes in order to get there.
Humbling ourselves before God in prayer is not always easy, fun, or enjoyable. Encountering God and seeing bold prayers answered makes it all worth it.
Lately, God has been answering big prayers of mine. This has been rejuvenating and my relationship with God is deeper.
What do you think about praying big, beautiful prayers? What keeps you motivated to remain steadfast in prayer?
