As we go through life there are upheavals in our prayer life. As a child we learn to pray what our parents pray. As we mature we take on our own relationship with God which also means we take on our own conversation with God. As we continue to mature and our faith gets tested, ideally, our prayers get deeper because our prayers are a natural reflection of our relationship just as conversations with other people deepen with enough shared experiences.
One of the things we learn along the way is that prayer matters. God’s omniscience somehow doesn’t interfere with his desire to still hear from us, from our hearts.
As we study prayer in October, let us also experience God through prayer in order to deepen our relationship with God and engage in new experiences with Him that will result in new levels of conversation we have never experienced before!
