Be Real And Be Relaxed With God

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world” (Psalm 46:10 NLT).

Hurry is the death of prayer. If you rush through all your prayers, it will kill your prayer life.

I have a habit in my prayer life: before I pray any prayer, it is almost spontaneous that I take a deep breath. I just relax, settle down, and let go of any tension. Then, I’m ready to talk God.  

So, when you pray, relax. Take a deep breath and try to forget anyone or anything that’s around you and just focus in on God for a minute. Calm yourself down and get still: “Be still, and know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:10 NLT).

Jesus sat in Martha’s house, but she was so busy, she couldn’t stop to talk to him and enjoy his company. Jesus said, “Martha, Martha! You are worried and troubled over so many things, but just one is needed. Mary has chosen the right thing, and it will not be taken away from her” (Luke 10:41-42 TEV). Mary chose to relax at the feet of Jesus, listening to him while “Martha was distracted” (Luke 10:40 NIV).

Be real and relaxed, “Go to your room, close the door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what you do in private, will reward you” (Matthew 6:6 TEV).
