A reflection on prayer (as one that is of a listening ear)

Reflections for the day

James 1:6

But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind; for the doubter, being double-minded and unstable in every way, must not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

They who have steeped their soul in prayer can every anguish calmly bear.
Richard M. Milnes

Faith, and hope, and patience and all the strong, beautiful, vital forces of piety are withered and dead in a prayerless life. The life of the individual believer, his personal salvation, and personal Christian graces have their being, bloom, and fruitage in prayer.
E. M. Bounds

Prayer can assume very different forms, from quiet, blessed contemplation of God, in which eye meets eye in restful meditation, to deep sighs or sudden exclamations of wonder, joy, gratitude or adoration.

O. Hallesby


A reflection on prayer

(as one that is of a listening ear)

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is almighty, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thee for thou mightiness. Thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is in possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, thou art the creator of thou world and all that is in thou world, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by all of Mankind. Thou hath created all of Mankind to be equal within thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is not bound by words, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect carefully upon the nature of prayer, and it is at this time we reflect carefully upon prayer as one that can be described as that of a listening ear. We acknowledge that during thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed much about prayer. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed that prayer is an element that is vital in a life of a self. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal that thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one of prayer, and we acknowledge that thou desires a life of a self to be one that can be described as one that is devoted to prayer.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou disciples of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, discerned a depth of an intimacy that existed between thou and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We are able to see in a way that is clear that this was an occasion that can be described as moving for thou disciples, and that this occasion procured thou disciples to ask thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to teach a self to pray. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there was a desire to experience a closeness that was perceived to exist between thou, and thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in a relationship with thouself, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are able to experience what is described as a state that is uplifted if a self takes in prayer to thou a worry, and if a self takes in prayer to thou a concern. We are thankful that a self can draw a comfort, and we are thankful that a self can draw a strength from thou presence, and we are thankful that a self can talk to thou about a day, and we are thankful that a self can talk to thou about a plan for a future, and we are thankful that a self can ask thou for thou guidance, and we are thankful that a self can ask thou for thou counselling.

Heavenly Father, we desire that all of Mankind will turn to thou always, and we desire that a self will turn to thou in prayer, and we desire that a self will draw closer to thou.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we uphold to thou the works that are good of thou WRVS, and the works that are good of thou WRVS are ones that enable many to be comforted, and are one that enable many to be helped, at a time of need. We ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to enable the works that are good of thou WRVS to continue, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before many to enable the works that are good of thou WRVS to continue in a place where there is a need, and a need that is one that is sought by many.

Heavenly Father, we are thankful for thou presence always, and we are thankful for all that thou doth for a self in a life, and we are thankful thou can hear all of the prayers of a self.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is thou way, and who is thou life, and who is thou truth, and who is thou way to thou, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Loving Father, I have to admit that I had to learn how to pray to thou again but have found it rewarding to almost have a conversation with thou and if there are any problems that I share with thou, frequently the answer is given to me within, minutes hours or days thus enabling me to address it properly. Amen
