Humbly Pray

The devotion Pastor Dave sent us last Wednesday was centered on prayer. A quote by Brother Lawrence was interesting, and one word loomed out at me – “humbly”.

What does it mean to humbly pray?

Dr. Rev. Larron Jackson spoke to us on Sunday about experiencing the power of divine dependency. I see a theme going on here. 😊

One definition of humble prayer for me is to get down on my hands and knees. Decades ago the Church practice was to sit, kneel, stand, kneel, stand, etc.; in my little Lutheran Church in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota (population 6K), we knelt at the alter to receive communion. Why do you suppose this practice exists so infrequently today? Do you suppose it’s because kneeling before God is a difficult thing to do? To become totally submissive to God’s power and Will – truly humble?

I remember one time when I was at a point of total desperation. I knew I could not make it on my own – no possible way! So, I crumbled on the floor, weeping and praying. It was a miracle of transcendence; I felt God’s presence like no other time before or since!

Have you tried kneeling to pray? If you haven’t, please try it. It takes effort – trust me.

“Lord, teach us to pray” and encourage us to pray often with our hearts, trust, and humbleness. You are the One who provides us with every need plus more. Thank you for being loving and gracious.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Hello. I see that you don't update your blog too often. I know that writing posts is boring and
time consuming. But did you know that there is a tool
that allows you to create new articles using existing
content (from article directories or other pages from your
niche)? And it does it very well. The new articles are high quality and pass the copyscape test.
You should try miftolo's tools
