MUSTARD SEED FAITH...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

By

YESTERDAY, was our NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER...!!!


This tradition goes back to the founding days of our nation...BUT...

 

MAYBE SOME OF US have forgotten how to pray...SO...

 

GOING BACK TO BASICS...If ‘PRAYER’ can be simply defined as ‘CONVERSATION WITH GOD’...THEN...

 

IF WE TRULY BELIEVE or at least HOPE, or even in desperation cry out...

 

IN A CONVERSATION WITH GOD...WHO WOULD DO THE MOST TALKING AND WHO SHOULD DO THE MOST LISTENING...???

 

HUMANLY SPEAKING IT’S relatively easy to come up with a typical ‘LAUNDRY LIST’ of petitions or needs to place at God’s feet, but, IF GOD IS TRULY PRESENT doesn’t HE ALREADY KNOW OUR NEEDS...SO...

 

THE CHALLENGE BECOMES ‘mustering’ up enough faith to TRUST HIM IMPLICITLY...AND LISTENING MORE THAN SPEAKING...AND...IT DOESN’T TAKE A LOT OF FAITH (mustard seed size)...!!!

 

A GOOD EXERCISE TO START OR HONE UP ON THIS WEEKEND...!!!

Hi Fran- I can remember when I was very young, I had a laundry list I'd pray for. As I got older I simply asked to help me become a better person.

Kathy,

Two 'best friends' don't need to say much to each other, they just enjoy each others presence...!!!

Thanks,   Fran

      Jesus Christ taught me how to pray.  "When you pray...  pray in this manner".  "If you ask anything in my Name, I will do it."

As I get older I find it much easier to be quiet and listen rather than always be speaking.

If we believe that God is who He says He is and will do what He says He will do,

Then we should Listen to Him. When I pray now, I listen a whole lot more than I did in the past.

Thanks for sharing.

Fran, one time my wife and I were going through a brief rough period and one night I cried and begged and cried and begged God to intervene. However I asked Him to let me know if I need to change. The next morning my wife pointed her finger at me and said, "you have been praying haven't you?" I said yes more like begging and then she told me that God told her to straighten up and treat her husband with dignity and respect. True story!
