Praying With Jesus: Prayer is Worship
“Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.”
This is something Jesus said to the woman at the well. She had asked where she should worship and Jesus’ response is that it’s not about the place you worship, but worshiping in spirit and in truth.
Prayer is part of our worship. Like Jesus said about worship, there is no one place that we should pray. There aren’t places where prayers are stronger or more powerful because prayer isn’t about the place we are, but the God who hears them…and He hears them no matter where you are. If you’re in the car, at home, at church, in nature, or in school before a test, God hears your prayer.
So, where are you now? God hears your prayers here, too. So, why not pray now?
You are the God of all creation. You hear me no matter where I am or what is happening around me. Today, I lift my praises and concerns to you and ask that You be with me. Protect me and guide me. My I glorify You in all that I do. Amen
