Ugh. Amen.

The amazement that prayer provides a means for mere humans to communicate with God Himself is almost lost in the technicalities that religion has placed upon it. Books and teachings claim to reveal secrets for getting through to the Almighty, but only if we strictly adhere to their formulas. Church leaders have made prayer part of the art of oratory. How sad, and how wrong.

The bible gives clear examples of prayers that penetrated God’s presence and caused divine intervention. Here are a few:

… the Lord has heard your cry of affliction …

… and God heard the lad crying …

… so God heard their groaning …

… I complain, and He hears my voice …

Other scriptures tell us the types of people who get the Lord’s attention. Specific mention is made of the destitute, the needy, those in misery, the humiliated, and more.

Many of the above describe me. How about you? If so, your life is a miracle. Somewhere in the heavenlies, your situation is in the hands of the living God. You didn’t need a robe, special education, or a new vocabulary. All that’s left is to say “Amen.”
