Been thinking a little more about this Diary of God thing. I think that prayer has to be an integral part of the equation. A diary is a story of relationship, interaction and experience. Prayer is supposed to be a major part of our relationship, interaction and experience with God. To use the old cliché, it is our method of communication with God. It is the forum with which we air our thoughts and feelings to God. While, not the only venue he uses to talk back, it is one of them. God often takes advantage of the direct contact that he has with us to speak to us. Share his vision for us to us. Remind to put him first. Urge us to put to death the lusts of this world. Encourage us to grow more daily. Prayer has been called many things; and many things it is included: lifeline to God, power supply from God, heavy artillery, support network, the hand of God moving, the tie that binds all Christians together, the well we drink from and prayer is the answer. Prayer is powerful. James says that the prayer of a righteous man avails much. Paul tells us to pray without ceasing. The Holy Spirit intercedes for us when we can’t get the words out. Prayer is candid, to the point and should be organized to take care of the needs of others ahead of ourselves. Prayer is trusting God to do what others can’t: sustain us. Prayer is about stepping outside of ourselves and allowing God to lead and to provide. Prayer is so much more than just bowing before meal and at bedtime. Prayer isn’t obligatory or a requirement. Prayer is a privilege and a blessing. Prayer is more than words can describe. Prayer is also essential to the Diary of God. Do you talk to him? Does he know the sound of your voice? If he doesn’t maybe you aren’t in the Diary… Yet.
