Prayer and Trouble

All about prayer

    Nobody likes to be called upon by someone else just when they are needed for something.  Wouldn't you agree?  It makes a person feel used and unappreciated.  Life is about give and take, not a one sided entitled-to attitude.
    God is more forgiving than we are and will never turn us away.  He is always there for us, even if we rarely turn to Him.  The trouble with that is that we miss out on so much when we don't seek His help.  Don't they say 'two is better than one' and Who better to be tied to than Him?
    Prayer is not just a 911 line of communication.  It is a place to thank God for all He has done for you.  It is a source of peace.  It is a way to express your concerns for others.  It is a love offering to your Father in heaven.  It is a place of repentance and forgiveness.  It is where you show your dependence on Him.
