He was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.” Luke 11:1 Prayer is not a normal part of the life of a person. I hear it said that a person’s life will suffer if they don’t pray, but I question that. What will suffer is the life of the Son of God in the person, which is nourished not by food, but by prayer. When a person is born again, the life of the Son of God is born within, and that person can either starve or nourish that life. Prayer is the way that the life of God in us is nourished. To say that “prayer changes things” is not as close to the truth as saying, “Prayer changes me and then I change things.” God has established things so that prayer changes the way a person looks at things. Prayer is not a matter of changing things externally, but one of working miracles in a person’s inner nature as we become more closely resembling our Creator and savior. Lord, please continue to re-make me in your image! Cliff CHURCH NEWS: Pumpkins arrive on Friday! Can you help us unload at 4pm? Band of Brothers, Saturday, 8am, CJ Cannon’s.
