Come boldly????

Today's thought on prayer is brief.  But significant.  Sometimes we act as though we are bothering God and we practically apologize for coming to Him.  We approach prayer as though we need to beg Him to grant our request. 

That's baloney and I want to help you change that stinkin' thinkin'.  God is the one that thought up the whole idea of prayer anyway!  It's His chosen means of communicating with us, of forging an intimate bond, of sharing His goodness, and of letting us participate in what He's doing. 

His plans for you and me are good, better than we could dream up ourselves.  And He possesses all power and controls all things so He can engineer anything He wants in order to accomplish His plan.

Do you need to make a decision?  Ask Him for wisdom.  Do you have a strained relationship?  Ask Him to show you how to repair it.  Is someone you love living dangerously?  Ask Him to show Himself strong on their behalf.   

Don't be deceived.  Come to Him, knowing the truth.

Matthew 7:11
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Hebrews 4:16
 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
