Today we continue our way through Joel Beeke’s little booklet, How Can I Cultivate Private Prayer? On p5, Beeke writes:
Consider the tremendous potential of prayer. It is nothing less than communion with the living God.
I am trying to keep this mind as I pray this week. I don’t want to just work through a list of needs (though I do want to do that). I want to commune with God. I want to recognize who I am talking to, and enjoy being able to talk to my Creator and Sustainer and Savior and King. I want to rest in the love of my Father as His beloved child as I come before Him.
Through Jesus, we can draw near to God Himself and commune with Him. What a great blessing to remember and exercise. May God help us to commune with God this week!
