Instant Access

Today we can communicate with each other instantly; I'm referring to texting and social media. Texting is a great tool in the hands of parents - well at least for me it is.

One of my children recently started an internship across the country. I'm thankful for the relationship we have because my children typically text me about anything - bodily functions, fears, clothes, people, deep thoughts, etc. You name it - I've probably gotten a text with it.

As I was replying to one of her numerous texts it occurred to me that as Christians we have the ability to have this type of instant communication with God, our Heavenly Father, through prayer.

Because of the relationship we have with Him: no formality is required, we can pour out our hearts to him at any point in time, and we have the knowledge that he hears us. We may receive an instant answer in the form of peace in our spirit or confirmation in many forms - a person, an article, a well timed word, and most importantly the scripture. Or we may receive a delayed response - either way, we know God hears us.
Prayer is our speaking from our hearts to our heavenly Father, and, in return, God’s speaking to us through His Word and guiding us by the leading of His Spirit.

The technology around texting is relatively new but the concept - quick access, has been around from the beginning of time.

Do you pray your way through the day? How do you feel after you've prayed?
