I’m done praying small prayers…

I don’t know if you’re like me, but sometimes…

I pray tiny prayers.

Why is that?!?

I know better, right! I know what scripture says about prayer. I know the power that is available. I know the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit is so much more than I could possibly ever imagine, but some days I just don’t get it.

I have struggles.

I have worries.

I have anxiety.

I limit God.

I put Him in a box.

I try to control Him.

I take my eyes off of Him.

And yet…

He is faithful. He is strong. He is loving. He is caring. He has a plan for my life. He is trustworthy. He is amazing. He is awesome. He answers prayers. 

I really do love prayer. It hasn’t always been that way and it’s taken a long time to develop this passion for prayer. But, even with that passion, some days I forget to pray. Some days I forget to immediately run to my Father and ask for help, ask for wisdom and ask for a miracle.

I’m done praying weak prayers.

I’m done praying small prayers.

I’m done praying prayers that I wonder if God will answer.

You do not have because you do not ask God. ~James 4:2
