“A Rational Perspective on Prayer!”

What a great insight the Psalmist had when he said:

“The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty, yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone and we fly away…so teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom!” Psalm 90:10 & 11 (ESV)

His point seems to be that even thought we are such ephemeral creatures on this earth…that we are here less than a blink… we should keep the right perspective when we pray.  That is, even  though we are temporary in the flesh we may approach  the eternal God of all creation…the timeless ” IAM” knowing that  He is  passionately interested in us and what we have to say!  We must never pray with an attitude that says “Well, I’ll pray now but I doubt if God is interested in what I have to say! It’s only me!”  God would respond with  “Not so!  I listen to you because  you are my eternal child and it is my joy to hear your prayers.  By all means…PRAY!”

Blessings!  Pastor Alberta

    Isn’t it amazing that He wants to hear from….us…..stubborn, willful, unworthy that we are. His love is beyond our human comprehension! >
