Last Resort?

Lately I have been challenged about how we treat 'prayer' in our lives. For many of us, Prayer becomes a last resort - when we have exhausted our own way of doing things, then we think of turning to God. Yet, this is not the way that Jesus modelled his prayer life. Before he did anything Jesus went away to pray and seek His father's will. Prayer was always Jesus' starting point - it was his FIRST port of call.

Psalm 55:17 - "I will pray morning, noon, and night, pleading aloud with God; and he will hear and answer."
"We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties."  ~ Oswald Chambers

May we turn our hearts first to Christ in prayer, then we can put our hands to work.

Living in Grace
