    In Hard Times and Good Times

    Father, I pray for all those in need,
    For all of my friends and my family.
    I pray for your strength to see us all through,
    When life is the hardest and when times are good.

    Father, when life seems to throw us a curve,
    When we are unsettled, upset and unnerved.
    I pray for your wisdom to carry us through,
    When life is the hardest and when times are good.

(1) Christopher says:

The first prayer in the Bible is Ge. 1.26. And God said, “Let us make man in our image.” Note the conversational means for the work of God. It’s prayer. We could say vs. 2 is prayer for God spoke, however, it is not inferred to be conversation. He simply spoke light into existence. The point is, nothing is done, in God’s kingdom, without conferring with Him and the receipt of His approval.
Jesus’ entire ministry was characterized by prayer. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise (Jn. 5.19).”
Jesus reigns by prayer and through prayer. The worlds were framed through prayer. The redemption of sinful man was attained by prayer. Our salvation had been wrought in prayer. We entered the Kingdom of God through prayer. Finally, we will reign with Him by prayer.
At this time, we are to learn prayer. We are to develop the discipline in prayer spoken of by the great saints of the 16th through the 29th centuries who said, in effect, “Take hold of God in prayer.”
This is not simply a compromise of my time by shooting a few words up to God while I walk my dog or drive to work. This is concentrated time with God in which we give ourselves to nothing but Him in prayer. Our prayer walks, afterwards will have so much more meaning.
