Prayer

From This Day's Thought.

Learning to pray is learning to trust the wisdom, the power, and the love of our Heavenly Father, always so far beyond our dreams. He knows our need and knows ways to meet it that have never entered our heads. Things we feel sure we need for happiness may often lead to our ruin. Things we think will ruin us- if we believe what the Father tells us and surrender ourselves into His strong arms, bring us deliverance and joy.

We often should not listen to the words of our Brothers and Sisters with complete trust. We Should ponder and be lead by the direction of God and seek first His Word by prayer and meditation. We need also be cautious when receiving direction asking ourself: Is it the word of God directing or is it my selfish will speaking?
