Prayer is much more than words. It is an expression of the heart toward God. It is an experience, a relationship, not an activity.
Every baptized Christian has boldness in prayer! The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ makes it possible for each of us to have access to God. Have you utilized your boldness in prayer? Talk to God, tell God your joys and concerns, give God thanks and praise, confess your sins and your needs before God in prayer. It is both that simple and that difficult.
Prayer is a dialogue between two people who love each other—God and a person. Simply put, prayer is communicating with God. Every Christian can directly contact God at all times. But many of us tend to forget such a direct line exists or rarely connect until an emergency arises.
Today we celebrate the Presentation of our Lord. This message was adapted from the “I Am She” resource available from the Women of the ELCA website and available for free download.
