Turning to God with or without words is the best form of prayer. Those words spoke to me in a recent devotion and I thought we do ourselves and God a disservice by assuming that prayer is only asking, or talking at God.
Prayer is walking with God.
It is fellowship with God.
We believe if God sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins – to restore us to fellowship with Him, then He must want fellowship with us. Enoch walked with God and God loved the fellowship so much He took Enoch home. Adam and Eve were created not to tend the garden, but to have fellowship with God when He came as the pre-incarnate Christ to walk with them in the garden. Gen 3:8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day…
Our Heavenly Father longs for us to spend time with Him. As with those in love, just being together is sometimes more than words.
Our prayer retreat time and our intercessory prayer time should be so much more than a monologue with God.
Let’s spend time with Him.
Let’s soak up His presence just by being near and dear to His heart.
Blessings as you walk and listen to your Father’s voice. Doneta
