Prayer is the constant desire to be in God’s presence. We are learning His will, seeking to follow His will and inviting Him to be part of all we are doing.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."
Few of us have really been trained in prayer. We see the pastor pray on Sundays, people pray before meals and over their kids, but few of us have ever been trained to desire to be in constant contact with the Father, asking Him to lead, guide and protect. Pray for old and young Christians in Libya that God will become a greater companion all day long. He is there, we are not. In the midst of all the violence and chaos that seems to reign in Libya, ask God to draw near to Christians in Libya. Pray that a strong connection with the Father will release more of His presence right across Libya. Pray that Libyan Christians would be praying more and more for their nation. May they experience that the joy of the Lord is their strength in times of trial.
"Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon."
