Mornings like these are times in my spiritual walk that I just feel plain dumb.
I have been struggling with nightmares for the past several months. I’d wake up drenched in sweat, heart racing- you get the picture. I was a scared, sticky, not-so-great-smelling mess.
Two nights ago I had the nightmare to top all nightmares for me and woke up in a complete panic. I shared this with a friend of mine who simply encouraged me to try praying about it before I go to bed with Bennett.
So Bennett prayed over me last night. This morning I woke up not scared, not sticky and smelling pretty good.
God is for sure teaching me lessons in prayer lately and my lack thereof. Why do I not even think to pray about these things? Is it pride? Is it not having spiritually minded thinking? Is it that I don’t want to ‘bother’ God with my ‘silly requests’?
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!”
“And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.”
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”
“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
