Imagine if every time your kid communicated to you, it would be to ask for something. In prayer language this is called “petition prayer.” We all pray this way and hopefully it is not all the time. If my children only spoke to me when they wanted me to do something, we would have a very strained relationship. Hence so it is with the Lord. He is desiring a relationship with us and that relationship means more than what He can do. Looking at the world’s needs, as my mother would say, “we can pray all day.” Those issues that bother your heart are meant to be interceded for. Prayer precedes the activity of heaven. But petition prayer is not all there is to a sound relationship with our heavenly Father. In fact He likes to talk and reveal His heart to us. His one book contains 66 books and Jesus is called the “Word” in the beginning of John. God has something to say.
Prayers of adoration, worship and praise without requests is a glorious way to pray! This is an invitation for God’s presence to show up and we get to taste a bit of heaven. There is rest and refreshing in this place. Peace will come and remove all distress and worry. It is a place to listen with open ears to His voice. What is on God’s mind and heart? What does He want to share? What mystery of heaven or kingdom keys does He want to speak? What scripture is He highlighting? His words come with transforming power and grace to fulfill.
God is love and He wants to love on us. If we never take the time to let Him love on us, we will miss a valuable experience. In worship and adoration the love of God comes. His love is the perfect satisfaction of our heart. We were made to love Him first and others with the love He has given us. God’s love is not tied to performance, nor is it conditional. His love sees potential and all our hidden treasures. Let me say this as a prophetic word, you have hidden treasure and the Lord wants to help bring that treasure out of hiding. Communion prayer is about communing with the Holy Spirit. This strengthens your love connection and your personal relationship with the Creator of the universe!
Psalm 34:1-3 I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul will make its boast in the Lord; the humble will hear it and rejoice. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.
