If someone were to ask me what is the common denominator of Marriage, Motherhood & Ministry, I would honestly have to say, Prayer!
There is Power in Prayer! Theologians have written about it, our leaders have spoken about it and recently scientist and medical experts are finding that Prayer Works!
We must constantly pray for our Marriages, Ministries & Our Children!
Prayer is communication with God. It is talking and then listening to what he has to say in return. I found it is easy to keep talking to someone about your problems, your dilemmas and mistakes. But the Art of Prayer is in the Listening. Can we Listen to God once we have spoken and made our Request? We give him a detail list of what’s not working, how we are feeling & what needs to be fixed in our lives.
Have you Mastered the Art of Listening? or Are you Monopolizing the Conversation?
I know this might seem harsh. Well, it’s because I have been in that place where my prayers were All About Me! I call it the What About Me Season! Does Anybody Care how I feel? Is Anyone Listening?
Through Prayer, I received a short but sweet answer that went something like this. YES, I MOST CERTAINLY DO!
MARIA, YOU SERVE A GREAT BIG GOD WITH GREAT BIG PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE & IT IS MUCH BIGGER THAN YOU THINK!!
THANK GOD FOR THE POWER OF PRAYER!!
