When we pray most of us bow our heads in solemn worship, but is that the only way? I like how Jesus prayed. When bringing Lazarus back to life He “lifted up his eyes;” when He multiplied the five loaves and two fishes “he looked up to heaven;” and when His time had come John 17: 1 says “These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to Heaven……” and he spoke to His Father. Each time I look at the night sky and see how He perfectly placed the stars, I lift up my eyes and give Him thanks for the beauty of his creations. How do you pray? No matter how you do it, thank God for all things! Amen? God bless you!
How many of us get up in the morning, say our prayers, and go on with our day? We miss some great opportunities to speak with our heavenly Father. Try praying when taking a walk, when you are driving to work (keep your eyes open), or when you are just sitting. When you say you’ll pray for someone, do it right then, in person or over the phone. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says “Pray without ceasing.” So let’s do it. God bless you and God bless Israel!
