Meeting God in Prayer
This semester I have been studying Church history and I have been reminded again of the need for prayer. Throughout history every great outpouring of the Holy Spirit has been preceded by prayer - and heaps of it. Many of the great revivalists have spent hours and hours on their knees seeking God and His will.
I was also reading John 10 this week where it talks about the sheep and the shepherd, and verse 4 jumped out to me:
“When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice”.
We need to know His voice! We need to be able to recognise His voice amongst the thousands of others that are crying out for our attention. I believe prayer, and heaps of it, is crucial to knowing Jesus' voice. Being able to still your soul and mind in the storms of life is vital.
Acknowledging a Creator in prayer, acknowledging God is in control. I need to step up my prayer, how are you going?
