Pray your part
Pray your part
Life works in cycles. Everything has a beginning and an end. During those cycles, and in between that beginning and end, there will be events that are beyond our comprehension and ability to overcome. Our major part in these events is to seek guidance from our Creator. We have to recognize that we have a part to play in our search for answers in our lives. Our part begins with getting in the habit of praying.
By getting into the space of prayer, one opens themselves to the acknowledgement that there is a higher source, a bigger purpose, and a different setting than the one currently being experienced. This is faith downloading. Whether that Source or purpose is known, becomes immaterial. The urge that moves us to pray is embedded in the hope that a solution, albeit difficult to establish at that very time, lies out there somewhere. That hope guides us to a possibility that, even when in despair, makes us feel some connection to our Source.
Prayer also unpacks that connection, as being one founded on love. We eventually realize how loved we are by our God, our Creator, our Father, and Source. Furthermore, we extend that same love to those people who mean a lot to us in our lives, by lifting them in prayer as well. Three words: Faith, Hope, and Love. These are achieved when we pray our part.
1 Corinthians 13:13: “And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
