If I offend you cry me a river I’ll bring snacks and a raft Shirt! Hallelujah thank you, woman, of God, you are right, The essence of prayer does not consist in asking God for something but in opening our hearts to God, in speaking with Him, and living with Him in perpetual communion. Prayer is continual abandonment to God. Prayer does not mean asking God for all kinds of things we want; it is rather the desire for God Himself, the only Giver of Life, Prayer is not asking, but union with God.
Prayer is not a painful effort to gain from God help in the varying needs of our lives. If I offend you cry me a river I’ll bring snacks and a raft Shirt! Prayer is the desire to possess God Himself, the Source of all life. The true spirit of prayer does not consist in asking for blessings, but in receiving Him who is the giver of all blessings, and in living a life of fellowship with Him. Please extend our greetings to the rest of your household remain blessed.
Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. If I offend you cry me a river I’ll bring snacks and a raft Shirt! Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things! Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things ‘above all that we ask or think.
