You’re never too young to pray! Jesus tells us to come to him with childlike faith. We should all have faith like little Isaiah Jackson! Perhaps Isaiah has seen powerful prayer in action. What do you think??
What a great reminder to pray out loud in front of the children – with passion and conviction. And, it is a great reminder to let the children pray out loud in front of us. What a blessing!
Prayer is an important discipline for people who love Jesus. After all, Jesus prayed, and don’t we want to follow his example? In Mark 1:35, we see that Jesus went out, while it was still dark, and he went to a solitary place to pray. The day before, he had healed many people. While he was alone praying, his disciples came to find him, saying, “Everyone is looking for you!” There were a lot of demands on Jesus. He was healing people, teaching, casting out demons and more. Fellowship with his Father helped him to meet all these demands.
So it is with us. If we are to meet the demands of our lives, it is helpful to have the strength, centeredness and encouragement that come from prayer. And – prayer works! God makes a promise to us in Matthew 7:7, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” We know that the answers to prayer we receive aren’t always the ones we want, but God is good, and he knows what is best for us. We are well-served when we ultimately pray like Jesus prayed – not my will but thine be done (Luke 22:42).
