Hope through Prayer

 

You received Christ Jesus the Lord, so continue to live as Christ’s people. Sink your roots in him and build on him. Be strengthened by the faith that you were taught, and overflow with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7 GW

All of the wisdom we need for every decision, and all of the strength we need for every mountain can only be found in Christ! We have great treasures of wisdom and knowledge in Him. God shows me what to do when I pray and ask Him for his wisdom and direction.

It’s amazing how we drift from Christ and find ourselves trying to live in our own wisdom and knowledge.

If it’s true that our only hope is in Christ, it’s also true that the only way to be rooted in Christ is through prayer.

Here’s what I have come to understand: apart from Christ, I can do nothing, but through Christ I can do ALL THINGS. Through Christ every complexity, every mountain, everything that hinders and has me bound can be resolved by prayer.

Prayer starts with the want to pray.

We see praying people who make it seem so easy. Stir up the desire to pray and connect to Christ through prayer. If prayer doesn’t answer all then prayer doesn’t matter at all.
