A PLACE FOR PRAYER


by Charles R. Swindoll

 

“Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You.”  Psalm 32:6

 

Never underestimate the place of prayer.

I am convinced that one of the reasons we are so lax in prayer is that we have never prepared a place to meet with God. When you want to draw near to the heart of God, you have to get away from the din,  away from the confusion, away from the noise and distractions.

You need a place apart – a place where you can separate yourself from the distractions of daily life and meet, alone, with God.

Then, be specific in your prayer life.

If you need a job, pray for a job. If you’re an engineer, ask God to open up an engineering position for you, or something related for which you are qualified. . . .  If you need fifteen hundred dollars for tuition, ask for that amount.  If some fear has you in its grasp, name that fear and ask specifically for relief from it.
