My spiritual life is sustained by prayer. I would have no relationship with God apart from my praying life. It is the daily conversation with God that strengthens my love and devotion, affirms my convictions and bond with God. Without prayer, there would be no believing.
I believe in God and so I talk to God. But, God is not an imaginary friend. No, God is real. So, it would be rude and ridiculous to not acknowledge God’s presence throughout the day. This is why it is not hard to “pray without ceasing” (First Thessalonians 5.17).
As you know, I write a monthly column on prayer for Smyth & Helwys, a publication company in Macon, Georgia. In some sense, it allows me to return to my Southern roots and serves as a reminder of the roots of my life: prayer. It is my source and my sustenance.
This month’s focus is that of unbelief. I don’t want to spoil the reading but I will preface the message with this: God is not afraid of our unbelief. You can continue praying even when you don’t believe and I’ll prove it to you. Click here.
