“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time. For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;” (1 Timothy 2:1-8)
Prayer, it is such an simple yet important part of life of a follower of Jesus. It is our way to talk to God and to share with Him all that we are going through, our struggles, our blessings. It is our opportunity to confess and repent of sins that He is able to forgive (through the work of Jesus). It is our way to pray for others and their struggles and blessings.
This week, let us remember to take time to pray each day. Prayer helps us grow in our faith and in our relationship with the Father.
