A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Prayer is a Conversation.

FROM THE HEART

 

He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Matthew 14:23  New King James Version

 

Having a conversation means listening as well as speaking.

 

Instead of being a Whiney Willie and only calling upon Jehovah when you want something from Him, take time every day to just talk with Him.

 

Begin with thanking Him for all His numerous blessing He has abundantly freely given you.

 

Then ask if there is anything He wants to say to you. Have your Bible ready

 

I know many times after asking there is an impulse to open the Bible and boy does He speak to me. Of course there is no sense in Him speaking to you if you refuse to obey what He is instructing you to either do or stop doing is there? And of course there is apologizing for any wrong you have committed. You can be sure that when you sin, it hurts God very deeply.

 

Prayer is a conversation with Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                              

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (God amongst us) for the wonderful privilege of always being available to talk with. I deeply love our conversations. I praise you in the name of He who understands my prayers because He has walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                               

 

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. An excellent post! People worry about some kind of “proper format” with which to pray. Just speak to God with honesty, love, and respect. He IS our best Friend…

    • I love to have pleasent converstaion with our Beloved as well as guidance and protection conversations

      • The Lord is there to hear anything we have on out hearts. He loves us immensely, and desires to hear from us about everything. He’s just our very best Friend!

        TTL

      • He certainly is our best friend and loves to walk with us and talk with us. It is very special to me

      • It’s a blessing which the “world” doesn’t have, and many don’t care about having. Too bad for them…

        Always good to hear from you my friend!

        TTL

      • It is sad actually that they refuse to enjoy the best relationship there is.

        I enjoy our fellowship

        God bless you

      • All Christians can enjoy the fellowship with one another, and of course with the Lord God. That was His design from the very beginning.

        Oh what the world is missing out on!

        TTL

      • Iam pretty much a loner but enjoy fellowshipping with the Christian family. Yes the worldly are missing out on a divine relationship as well as the one with our Beloved

      • You are doing the right things where your Christian duties are concerned. We live in a world which “hates” us because they hate the Father.

        That’s why we have our brothers and sisters in the faith, along with our Lord, to enjoy worship and fellowship with.

        Remember this world is passing away as we speak. Any trials you now bear will not compare with what awaits you in heaven!

        Thanks for the reply as always…

      • I consider it an honour to be hated for Christ as He was hated for me. I do not look for confrontation but nither do I back down from what is right

      • In times past, the Christian saw it as his duty to “get his point across” where the gospel was concerned. Sadly, this led to many confrontations and a bed reputation for us.

        Today, when the scriptures say “contend for the faith,” I see it as more like showing a more Christ-like love towards all others, even when they slander us for it.

        We live our beliefs for others to see. Some will take umbrage with what we say. But we must learn that contending with them over and over will only make things worse. They will never “come around” to see the Light.

        So stand firm in our Christian values and sow the seeds of love. Let God do His work, not only with us but with all others as well!

        TTL

      • I bleieve it is our duty to gracefully, wisely and meekly present the message, it is the Holy Spirits job to convict them. If they reject the message I just move on. Mybe in the future what I said will convict them.

      • This is exactly correct! We sow the seeds, God gives the increase…

        TTL

      • Christians reap sweet fruit while the worldly reap the bitter

      • Now if only those who bash around aimlessly, looking to the world for answers could see that fact, they could be at peace…

        Have a wonderful day,
        TTL

      • Thier ego unfortunatly will not allow it.

        Jehovah bless you with peace, love and joy

      • Ah…the “pride of life and self” gets in between God, man, and solving problems so often!

        The man of the world cannot grasp the power of humility before the Lord…

        TTL

      • Oh so true. Mans way leads to disaster, Gods way leads to success.

      • But try to tell this to some “egomaniacs” in the world! (Mostly politicians and law makers…)

        TTL

      • I think it is because of the politically correct that white men are becoming more violent. We have wmens rights but where is the mens (Ask any man that has been in divorce court)? We have minority rights but where is the white mans (ask a more qualified white man that was passed uo for the job because they had to have their “quota” of :minorities”? We have religious tolerance but where is the tolerance towards Christians. Of course Christians do not turn to violence but it stresses the point.

      • I agree with the general statement you are making. The change in demographics and special interests have reshaped what we now consider “PC” as opposed to 10-20 years ago, or more!

        However, all creeds and cultures now in the minority suffer the effects of this social shifting. And as for the Christians, we must accept that we are now, and will always be persecuted. But we will garner no sympathy from too many others…

        As long as we stand for Godly things, it’s all okay. The Lord will sort it all out and make it right one day!

        TTL

      • I agree but for those who do not have Jehovah they see no other way out but violence and I beleive that is why we are seeing so many white men joining the jihadists. I do not beleive they have converted to Muslims but are using it as a way to fight back, unfortunatly

      • People like to feel like they belong to a cause or purpose. Many look around the world for answers because it’s all they know to do.

        As we have removed God’s influence and buried as much information about Him as possible in society, these people who are looking for purpose turn to things such as terrorism. It’s so sad to watch!!

        TTL

      • That is a very good point and perspective. Thank you.

      • Oh so true. That is why there are so many problems in the world today

      • Funny how this happens…we turn away from God and find ourselves all the worse off for it!

        People will never learn it seems…

        TTL

      • I think it happens to us all and we have to be very careful about it every day.

      • Yes, we all have “good and not so good” days in our faith. But when we are down, we need to learn to pray and read scripture, or contact a fellow Christian for support.

        As we fill in more of our time with Godly things and people around us, the times are easier!

        TTL

      • That is so true in every aspect of it. The times may not be easier but they are less trying.

      • You just hit the “nail on the head!” No, the times, nor the temptations to sin may not change, but it is we who make the change.

        The more we live as God wants us to, the more we pray with love, the less often we should find ourselves falling to trespass. And the stronger our faith becomes.

        But it is an ongoing thing, a life time of working to improve…

        TTL

      • It is a lifetime of work with our partner the Holy Spirit.

      • God knows we are no match for the evils of Satan on this earth all by ourselves! That’s why He dwells within us by way of the Holy Spirit to help give us Godly sustenance and direction when fending off the trickery of the evil one!

        Praise God for such guidance and protection to His children…

        TTL

      • That is why we need a constant connection with our Beloved.

      • God’s will becomes our first priority in this life. If that is true, all else in our relationship with Him will fall into place!

        TTL

  2. prayer is the conversation with love to God. God should love us. For that we should obey him and live as per the will of God. Thanks for liking my post.
