When I consider our new series, “Praying Like Jesus”, I immediately feel deficient because Jesus’ prayers were effective. When Jesus prayed people were healed, lives were changed, and families were restored.  But my view of prayer is limited if I think it’s only about getting results. Prayer is about relationship.

As you know, it is difficult, if not impossible, to build any meaningful relationship without communication. Communication is not only the exchange of information but is also a means through which we open our inner lives to the ones we trust. If this is true of our earthly relationships then it is definitely true of our relationship with God.  In prayer, we open our inner lives to God and invite him into those areas of our heart that has remained closed to even some of our closest friends—those areas of uncertainty, disappointment, pain, and failures. Jesus prayed for miracles and he prayed in times of anxiety and doubt, so should we.  God’s desire is to make you whole, but you need to invite him into those areas of brokenness, so today, let’s begin “Praying Like Jesus”.

My heart is still so full from Easter morning!  I can still feel the rich worship, the powerful simplicity of the gospel, the freshness of testimonies, and great JOY of baptisms. What a celebration of the resurrection of Christ we enjoyed! With each day that passes this week I have been experiencing a significantly new sense of being drawn to Jesus and His love. To receive the love of Jesus into my thoughts and into my heart’s motives and emotions as I struggle for balance on tough days. I’m finding that being conscious of HIS love I’m much more motivated to love outwardly! To love as Christ loved, when He willingly allowed the ridicule, misunderstanding, false accusations, and finally death - all for another’s redemptive gain (us!). Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to love when it’s not reasonable or deserved. And our ‘crosses’ are not nearly as overwhelming as Jesus’ was! So, Jesus is still calling. He’s calling us in to His love so that we can go out in the freedom of His love. I Cor. 13:13. We’re all invited!
