Above All Else She Prays

Above All Else She Prays

I believe praise and prayer is the most critical component to life’s journey’s fulness.


Prayer offers the believer:

Salvation and Forgiveness- Prayer offers us promises of deliverance, grace, and covering our sins daily. Provision and Care- Prayer comes with promises to hear concerns and to meet our needs if we believe. Love, Peace and Companionship- Prayer blankets us with unconditional blessings- things money or any idol cannot offer. Everlasting love, peace and companionship all the days of our life through prayer/praise.

Prayer brings life to the table though the Christian faith.

Prayer is one of the most common phenomena in all human life. We use prayer for everything throughout our faith. When we speak about salvation and forgiveness this is all through prayer. Prayer is our direct communication with God. It is the backbone of our intimate relationship. Anytime we are looking for forgiveness, healing or comfort we look for all things to happen through prayer.

Theologians of times past created a distinction between liturgical and devotional prayer. Devotional prayer is private and meant to sustain us personally, while liturgical is more public in nature aka the churches prayer and not our own.

God has requested a relationship with his people since the beginning of time. God has tried many different avenues to create relationship with his people. The book of Exodus is a great place to start for me because his words on relationship and what God wanted to see from his people were described with Moses on Mt. Sinai. We learned in the book of Exodus, God requests a covenant with his people and gave explicit instructions of obedience and relation criteria within our 10 commandments. This would help guide the covenant people into relationship with God. God produced his name upon his people providing intimacy through prayer. The first 4 commandments in the Bible are about cultivating a relationship with God.

Our Heavenly Father wants us to know there is only one true God and is committed to making HIS presents known.

There are many other voices in our head and discerning the voice of God is important. The voice of God challenges and stretches us, even as it is the only voice to soothe and comfort. The voice of God invites us to live beyond all fear, even as it inspires holy fear.

God led his people to the wilderness before the promise land. I believe this was to cultivate their relationship and learn how to rely on God. We have given God praise through worship in song for thousands of years and this to me is one of the most powerful ways to pray and cultivate a relationship of intimacy and reverence. Prayer may come in different forms but making sure to first give thanks and praise. Then asking for forgiveness of sins- the sins you are aware of and ask God to reveal to you the ones you don’t see. Pray for the Lord’s will upon your heart so dreams and accomplishments don’t feel like such a struggle. Pray for holy alignment with God and to make your narrow path light so you see clearly your direction with decisions. I always pray for Godly wisdom, discernment and to place my God given armor on each day.
