The best way to grow in prayer is to understand what it is. It’s talking with someone who knows you verywell.
Every one of us can pray this:O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. You go before me and follow me. Youplace your hand of blessing on my head (Psalm 139:1-5).
This is more than a sign speaking hope. The proceeds from its sale help provide for people in need.
If someone is poorly clothed and lacking daily food and you say, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled, without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?” So also faith by itself, if it does not have good works, is dead (James 2:16-17).
Let your faith produce prayer, and your prayer produce good deeds.
