Pray

Deuteronomy 4:7 What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to Him?

Psalm 5:3 In the morning, O Lord, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait in expectation.

I am so grateful to be able to teach my children about prayer. After watching “War Room” we made a prayer wall in our home. There is a box of pencils and post-it-notes near the wall so that we can write out our prayer requests and post them on our wall. There are a few posts where we wrote scripture out to remind us of how to pray, how to treat each other, and how great our God is.

Every night we stand or kneel in front of our prayer requests. Some of those requests have been there for a while, reminding us to remain faithful in those prayers. However, some of those prayers have been answered, reminding us to praise God. I’m so grateful for those reminders. I need to be reminded of how God has been near us, near me when we pray. We need to be reminded.

Father, thank you so for being near me when I pray.
