This simple blog is devoted to the greatest privilege that man has ever been given; PRAYER.
Prayer is not just a call to war; it is also an invitation to rest. Jesus said, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6,7).
Knowing that God is on your side will help you to enter into the rest He offers. He invites you to give Him your problems, cares, concerns and worries (see 1 Pet. 5:7; Matt. 6:25,26). “Cast your burden upon [Him], and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken” (Ps. 55:22).
Cease striving and partner with Him. He loves you and longs to share His heart with you. He has called you, dear child of God, to rest in His love as you come away with Him in prayer. Will you say yes to that invitation today?
