Why Pray?

I’ve spent over 55 years of my life involved in the church  Most of it I have held the position of a pastor but I want you to know that i don’t think that makes me any better than anyone else or any closer to God than anyone else.  I have know people who held positions like laborers, teachers, business men and women, business owners, accountants, grocers, stay at home moms and dads, military persons, police and fire fighters, doctors, nurses and much, much more, and many of them were more intimate in their relationship with Christ than I was.  One of the keys to people like that was their prayer life.  For many of them there was an intimacy with God that came because of the time they spent in prayer with God alone.  You could hear it in the way they talked; you could see it in the way they treated others; you could watch it when hard times came and when life became difficult.  And many of them challenged me to learn more about prayer and more importantly to learn how to pray simply by the life they lived!  But why?  Why is it that people who are especially intimate with God seem to have an active, intimate prayer life?  Why pray?


Love, Love, Love

There are some interesting words in the story of Jesus and His last night on earth with His disciples before He is crucified.  We find part of it in John 13 where Jesus shares the Passover Feast with them and before they eat their meal He washes their feet.  I’ll be honest with you, the words that I’m thinking about, I don’t really think we pay any attention to them at all.  I want you to understand that I’m talking about most all of us.  Most all of us who call ourselves Christians.  Most all of us who go to church most weeks.  Most all of us who read the Bible, who pray, who believe what Jesus came for and what He says. 

Those are pretty harsh words, but the more that I think about it the more I think I believe it.



I read about an auction that the devil once had.  As the perspective buyers assembled they noticed an assortment of tools that he was selling.  The tools were worry, fear, lust, greed and selfishness were all carefully inspected before the sale.  But off to one side, standing alone, there was one oddly shaped, well-worn tool which was labeled, “Not for Sale.”  Asked to explain why, the devil replied, “I can spare my other tools, but I can’t spare that one.  It is the most useful implement that i have.  With it I can work my way deep into the hearts otherwise inaccessible.  After I have plowed deeply with this tool, the way is open to plant anything that I desire.  It is the most effective tool that I have; it is the tool of discouragement!”
