So for this Friday Five, let us share about our prayer practices, whether silent or not:
1. How do you pray?
Many ways. Creatively. With music, journalling, dancing, singing, creating,
Beginning with praise and acknowledgement of God's worth. Gratitude for who God is.
1 John 5.14 And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us.
15 And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him.
2. How has your idea of prayer changed over time?
Prayer is opportunity to spend time with God. Being in God's Presence.
3. Do you ever sit in silent prayer? How does it go?
I do. It goes Beautifully as I turn my heart's full attention on Yeshua Jesus in gratitude.
4. Do you have any difficulties and/or pleasures in prayer?
For me the difficulty is choosing to be intentional in prayer. Not allowing it to stay at routine
Song of Solomon 5:16
"His voice and speech are exceedingly sweet; yes,
He is altogether lovely [the whole of Him delights and is precious].
This is my beloved, and this is my friend...!"*
5. What is the best advice that helped you with prayer?
I am not an orphan. I need not beg or hold back.
Bonus: Share something about prayer or an example of a prayer you like.
