The Importance of Prayer

As I was sewing a button back onto a shirt, I noticed the intricate detail of the thread that made up my blouse. Every piece wove together to create the larger piece of fabric, and it reminded me of how intricately interwoven our lives are with Christ.

As Christians, Jesus should be the center of all that we are. Jesus was with God when He created us and is in complete control. Our God is not a distant, uncaring sovereign. Through prayer, we get to be in constant contact and conversation with Him. Interacting with God through prayer is an important thread in weaving the the intricate detail of of our relationship with Him.

No matter how seems sometimes, God always hears our prayers and listens to the cries of our hearts, just as He listened to Jesus pray for Himself, for His disciples and for all believers in John 17. Though the answer might not be what we expected and it might take longer than we expected, God knows what we need. He wants to fulfill our dreams. We don’t have to strive for them; we just have tell God about them.
