But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
God wants you to get away from all the noise and distractions around you to spend some quiet time with Him in prayer. It’s not always easy to find time or a quiet place but if you make an effort to be alone with God in prayer it will always be worth it.
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
I invite you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you. Turn to Him, put your hope in Him, and put your trust in Him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really experience Him for yourself through prayer and reading the Word of God.
Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
We all have needed or will need comfort and compassion at some point or another. The world attempts to keep you content but the only place to find real comfort and compassion is in the Lord. Pour out your heart in prayer and the Lord will give you the comfort and compassion you long for.
In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
The most important thing you can do to start your day is to spend time with the Lord in prayer. Thank Him for another day of life, praise Him, lay your requests at his feet and invite Him into your day. After spending time with God you can face anything.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
When you have a decision to make that you are uncertain about, take it to the Lord in prayer. God is wise and all knowing, the giver of all good things. Bring your concerns to Him with sincerity and ask for guidance and wisdom to make the right decision.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness
Reading the Bible as part of your prayer can lead to enlightenment. God speaks to us in many ways including His written Word. He may open your eyes to something new when a passage you’ve read before suddenly becomes clear and impacts you like never before.
