Wisdom For Each Day – October 16, 2014

Prayer is not something mysterious or secret; prayer is simply talking to God.  And God wants you to talk to Him!  He loves you, and He has promised to hear you when you pray.

Prayer is possible because Jesus Christ removed the barrier between God and us, a barrier caused by our sins.  Sin separates us from God, and because of that, we have no right to come to Him in prayer.  But Jesus removed that barrier when He died on the cross for us.  When we commit our lives to Christ, God gives us the privilege of approaching “the throne of grace with confidence,” (Hebrews 4:16).

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

1 John 5:14
