We know we ought to pray.
We know that God invites and even commands us to pray.
We know He loves to hear from us, and loves knowing us individually.
So why does our soul feel so bone dry, where praying seems impossible?
What do we do?
Make the effort to pray.
It is always the right thing to do.
Pray short things. Breath prayers.
I’m convinced Jesus is our closest friend.
I’m confident that Jesus listens to our heart,
I’m certain He hears our feelings and our stammering voice
And He’s the best listener that has every listened to us
He always has time for us. He never avoids us.
He’s involved in every intricate detail.
Every thing in our life matters to Him.
Nothing is too small that He doesn’t care about it.
He knows we are struggling to talk to Him.
But somehow we just need to just pray.
I’m very throughly convinced that the demon world constantly lies about Jesus
They whisper in our ears especially about talking to Jesus
They say Christ is too slow
They say we’re too messed up for Him to even listen
They say we are far from close to Him
They say we’ll never be that special to Jesus because we’ve flopped too many times
Yes we are bombarded by the devils dumb deceptions
But the Spirit says pray on all occasions
Pray with all kinds of prayers and requests.
Persist With this in mind, being alert and always keep on praying
for all the Lord’s people.
Pray also for me, pray for each other, pray for you
Don’t give Satan a ledge to operate from with his lies
Don’t fall for demonic traps that we’re a sin infested loser
As far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our sins from us.
God blots out all our transgressions for Christ sake,
and He won’t remember our sins anymore
None of Jesus shed blood is ever wasted
Yes we’ve gone astray;
Yes we’ve turned the wrong way a bazillion times
But our LORD has laid on Jesus the iniquity of us all.
All our lawless deeds are forgiven,
All our sins are covered over;
Our Lord will not count our sin against us.
Now there’s no condemnation
Now we’re safe and new in Christ Jesus.
Now we Pray Boldly
We boldly approach God’s throne of grace with confidence,
We receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Now we Pray dependently
The Spirit helps us in our weakness.
We don’t know what we ought to pray for,
So God’s Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
And Jesus searches our hearts knowing the mind of the Spirit,
As the Spirit intercedes for us in step with God’s will.
We Pray when we’re exhausted
Because Jesus keeps telling us to Come to Him,
when we’re weary and burdened, and He’ll give us rest.
Take His yoke (walk hand in hand with Jesus and we’ll learn from Him)
How gentle, humble and meek in heart Jesus is,
And we’ll find rest for our souls.
Even in the darkest valley, we will fear no evil, for Christ is with us;
And His rod and His staff, they guide and comfort us.
