1-800-Jesus

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
-‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6‬‬

Imagine yourself in a relationship that over time lacked communication, you rarely saw one another, never spent quality time together and only made contact when there was an issue or problem that needed to be address? How would you maintain that chemistry or connection that you once had?

Think about it most of us would not go a day without speaking to our closest family member, friend or spouse. So why would we continue to neglect the most important relationship of all? It seems that as though when we are comfortable and life is “good”, Jesus is not always on the mainline. But, in the time of trouble he is always the first one that we call.

We can throw up an occasional prayer of thanks for our food, talk to him a couple of times a week and read a scripture every now and then. But, what is that saying about our relationship with Jesus?

The beautiful thing about prayer is that it can take place anywhere whether you are at church, home or work, you can always have a direct line connecting to 1-800-Jesus. So instead of utilizing prayer as an emergency only hotline, we can began to use it as our spiritual lifeline daily.

“To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.” ―Martin Luther

Tips:
– Make prayer a habit by setting an appointment on your calendar so that your are allowed uninterrupted, quiet time.

– Keep a prayer journal

– Instead of always praying for yourself begin to pray for others.

– Including praise or singing into your prayer routine will help change the pace.

– Always remember strengthening your prayer life simply does not happen overnight, consistency is key.

-‭‭Psalms‬ ‭145:18‬‬

“Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;”

“Pray without ceasing.”
-‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:17‬‬

  1. 1-800-JESUS is a powerful message!
    It is so wonderful to know that we can call on JESUS 24 hours a day and he’s never to busy to take our call. If we can remember to pray without ceasing, 1 Thessalonians 5:17. It would eliminate a lot of trouble that we get into. Love your tips. Keep up the good work. Love, Auntie C.💕
