Free To Pray


Free To Pray By Kirk Hunt


‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV


Jeremiah sat in the prison courtyard, jailed for speaking God’s Word to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. He may have been locked down, but Jeremiah was still free to pray. Speaking with God is always a good use of your time.


Too often, we forget to sit and talk with God. We rush from appointment, to event, to activity, without pause. Families, day jobs, or church work crowd out time with the God-who-provides. When we lay awake, too upset or anxious to sleep, we often miss the opportunity to pray.


Prayer takes time and intent. Speaking with God is an expression of love, but also an act of discipline. Prayer does not happen by accident, even when it happens in desperation.


Prayer should be a Christian man or woman’s main source of spiritual strength, Godly wisdom, and supernatural calm. Spiritual power is no accident. A deep and rich relationship with God is available to any woman or man who cares to spend time speaking with Father-God.


God calls to you. Right where you are. Just as you are. Will you not you stop and answer Him?


God may take you farther, and faster, than you want to go. He may sit you down longer and more quietly than you like. In either case, He will speak wonders in your ears and majesties in your heart. Your soul will be awestruck, and satisfied, by your time with Him.


Think:             Have a conversation with God.


Pray:               “Father-God, here I am. Speak with Your child.”
