Realizing the Importance of Praying to God the Father

This quotation is taken from the November issue of “InTouch Magazine.” The title of the article is “The Pattern of PEACE.” [page 30]

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Phil. 4:6

Notice the word “supplication” in this verse. “This conveys the idea that we should not only tell God about our circumstances but also pour out our hearts before Him. Sharing our feelings with the Lord is essential if we’re to develop a loving, intimate relationship that reaches beyond head knowledge to encompass our hearts. He’s a tender Father who sympathizes with our pain, confusion, fear, and frustration. He wants to give us more than a solution to our problem: His desire is to provide comfort and assurance in the midst of our troubles.”
