RESOLUTIONS: “Draw closer to God through prayer”

RESOLUTIONS: “Draw closer to God through prayer”


Knowing God and being

able to talk to Him will give meaning and purpose to our existence.  God truly loves us. (Romans 8:38-39)  He is always there, his hand outstretched,

waiting for us to seek Him.  He has so

much to give us and wants the opportunity to do so (Matthew 7:11). Spending

time in prayer is one way to be

alone with God.   Our Lord spent much

time alone in prayer communing with God. 

Many times He withdrew into the mountains to pray and rest.  In prayer we can communicate to God our

innermost thoughts, needs, desires and thanksgivings. Talking with God will

help you to feel closer to Him and rely on Him for all things, knowing that: “The

effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”   James 5:16(b).

Make a resolution to

slowdown and pray more fervently.
