Prayer doesn’t have to be a matter of a month-long retreat or even an hour of meditation. Prayer is a conversation with God while driving to work or awaiting an appointment or before interacting with a client. Don’t think for a minute that he is glaring at you from a distance with crossed arms and a scowl, waiting for you to get your prayer life together…just the opposite.
Jesus said, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in and eat with you, and you will eat with me” (Revelation 3:20 NCV). Jesus waits on the porch for you to open the door. And the happy welcome to Jesus is, Come in, O King. Come in. We speak and He listens. He speaks and we listen. It’s prayer in its purest form. And God changes his people through such moments. Let him change you.
