What a wonderful privilege of drawing near before God...the One who spoke everything into existence. I'm not certain we fully grasp the magnitude of prayer. I often forget this profound truth and fail to be astounded at what is taking place when I pray.
Chuck Lawless sums up this idea nicely in his helpful book Discipled Warriors:
"When we pray, we communicate with the Creator of the universe. He allows us to encounter Him without destroying us while we are in His presence. In fact, He delights when we come before Him as His children." [emphasis added]
The context of prayer is one that deserves a word that is so overused in our day, "Awesome!" This opportunity ought to amaze and humble us. Brothers & Sisters, go boldly before your King!
