Got Prayer ?

There are at  least 6-7000 (6912)  spoken languages in the world today; And God understands them all because he is the Creator of them all. God is able to speak languages that people are aware of, and he can speak languages we’re not aware of. He can speak English, French, Spanish, Italia, Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, or Swahili in whatever dialect necessary to further the Kingdom of God.

God speaks through the trees and leaves, flowers and showers, cold and snow, mountains and valleys, rain and sleet, cattle and deer, sky and sea, tortoise and porpoise, whale and snail, hurricane and sugarcane, little baby boy and little baby girl, grand ma and grandpa, noon day hour and midnight hour, God speaks to people !

Yet, the ability to talk to God (prayer) and listen to God, is a gift from God – and not everybody can hear what “Thus saith the Lord”; The Psalmist tells us, “every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord.” Knowing that sometimes you just have to glorify his name for who he is, “O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all th earth. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy finger, the moon and the stars which thou has ordained. What is man, that thou art mindful of him, or the Son of Man that thou would visited him…O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth (Ps. 8).”

Listening to God encompasses more than a listening ear. It requires ones presence before God, and to earnestly seek him. A) It requires you  to know the voice of God- Jesus said, ” my sheep know my voice “. B) It requires that you, “be still and know that I am God.” C) It requires that you “taste and see that the Lord is good.” D) It requires that you establish a relationship with God. E) It requires that you believe that he answers prayer; Jesus says, “Everything is possible for him who believes.” God communicates with his people anytime, anywhere, in all situations you may find yourself in; He is there if you would just call upon him. Whatever you’ re going through God can speak you through.

 Communication in general means more than words; The verbal part of communication is only the tip of the iceberg. It is only what we would like to believe, or would like the other (person) to believe. It is a dressed up version of our basic feelings designed to display us in the most favorable light – like an attorney presenting his best case to a jury – i.e. in a heated disagreement , very often, the more you talk the more you alienate and antagonize the other; Most attempts at communication are self-serving, self-justifying, self-glorifying, or simply recriminatory ( to counter one accusation with another). Fortunately, this form of communication does not affect God, in that, he sees through the disguise.

Many us throughout the journey, find ourselves feeling like an AM radio station; As long as we are in proximity to the 50,ooo watt signal, we’ re strong, we ‘re clear, we attract and reach a lot of people. But when we drift to far from the power source our signal becomes weak and fuzzy, our purpose/ministry becomes unclear, and we repel and push people away. It is when this drifting, weak and unclear disposition comes upon us that He poses the question, “Do you have prayer”?
