The Privilege of Prayer

Have you seen prayer as one more duty that you need to take care of? Have you been plagued with guilt for not waking up earlier to pray? I have!

Jesus told His disciples that when He would leave, they would be given the privilege to pray directly to the Father. Prayer is not something we are obligated to do. It is something we get to do! It is a unique opportunity to open our hearts to the Creator and Sustainer of life itself–and to listen to His heart in return.

In some large churches, getting an appointment with the pastor can be quite a task. What about having audience with the President of a country? Most of us never will! But we do have the privilege to talk to the King of kings any day, any time. Every day – every time. Wow!

Besides that, He listens. And responds. I don’t want to miss this divine opportunity.
