PRAYING to God brings us closer to Him. When we need guidance, peace of mind, or healing, we often think of asking God for help. But for many of us the tendency is to pray only when we’re already in trouble. Sometimes it may seem difficult to set aside the time, or praying may not occur to us until we’re facing serious difficulties. I used to be like that. Although I had been taught to pray daily, my prayers were more habitual than deeply thoughtful. As I gained a better understanding of God, however, and began to see how effective prayer could be in my everyday life, I realized that I didn’t have to wait until things got bad to pray. And now I find myself praying daily even if I don’t have an immediate need.

Daily prayer can be inspiring, protective, uplifting, healing. And, while praying in this way doesn’t necessarily eliminate all of our problems, it does give us a head start on overcoming the difficulties we do face. Often when we’ve prayed diligently beforehand, we look at a problem as an opportunity to prove or demonstrate the spiritual facts we’ve already come to understand. To put it another way, we learn to trust our prayers. Eventually we find that our trust in God has been so well established that we turn to Him naturally — and immediately — even during trying times. When this happens the greatest joy isn’t always the healing that comes from turning to God, but the fact that we were once again able to trust our prayers to God.

Prayer restores the peace, trust, and joy that are natural to man, God’s offspring. Concern can be replaced with the spiritual understanding that all of God’s ideas are in the right place. Self-condemnation can disappear when we realize that our prayers are effective and all we need to do is listen for God to reveal to us what to do and then act in obedience to Him.
