The Beauty of Prayer

Just as the seasons bring so much beauty, God's Word brings peace, beauty, and life that lasts through all the seasons.

All through the month of April I kept being reminded to go deeper into the great gift God has given us in prayer ... this amazing gift that He has given us, in allowing us, and even welcoming us, to talk directly with Him. It is such an incredible gift. And there is so much to learn ...

I often share little devotional thoughts from my journal, on Instagram. Here are a few from the month of April ... life-giving thoughts from His Word, on prayer. And these photos of our beautiful peach tree blossoms were perfect to use along with the thoughts that He was placing on my heart during the month of April about the incredible gift of prayer, talking with Him about everything.

"You can trust the One
who died for you."
(Jesus Always)

"Don't worry about anything;
instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need,
and thank Him
for all He has done.
Then you will experience
God's peace,
which exceeds anything
we can understand.
His peace will guard
your hearts and minds
as you live in Christ Jesus."
(Philippians 4:6-7)

We can trust Him
for everything,
with everything ...
all because of Easter.

"I also pray that you will understand
the incredible greatness of God's power 
for us who believe Him.
This is the same mighty power
that raised Christ from the dead
and seated Him in the place of honor
at God's right hand in the heavenly realms."
(Ephesians 1:19-20)

For us who believe Him ...
the same mighty power.

For us,
this week,
and for today.

There's no need to decide
what to pray for ...
is it too small?
is it too big?
and does He care?

He says to pray about
And everything means
every. single. thing.

"Don't worry about anything;
instead, pray about everything."
(Philippians 4:6a)

I often need this reminder ...
don't wait; don't worry first;
just talk with God about it.

"As soon as something
grabs your attention,
talk with Me about it."
(Jesus Calling)
