I don’t know how many books and articles have been written on prayer.
I don’t know how many sermons have been preached on prayer
We don’t need to know how to pray, we just need to pray.
My prayers are a loving response to the One who loves us best, to the One who is love. He created us to pray. And when I forget this or my prayer life turns stale, I need only look to Scripture for encouragement, for a reminder of God’s love.
The Apostle Paul prayed a lot. I love his prayer for the Ephesians; here is just a small bit of it. This is my prayer for you:
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. Ephesians 3:16-17
