PRAYER (2)Matthew 7:11
Some of us have (or had) fantastic parents, and had the blessing of a top-rate start in life. (Thank God for that, right now. Go on!) Others of us, through no fault of our own, faced harder realities from an early age. You may have been through battles that people your age still have nothing to compare it to in their own lives, and you may still be nursing your scars. If that’s you, it’s ok. God’s still got you. (And, if you need help, do talk to someone about it.)
Whatever your human parents were like, God is the perfect parent. He finds nothing sweeter in the universe than the moment when you turn to Him. If you’re hungry, He’ll feed you. If you need healing, He’ll heal you. If you’re fearful, He’ll strengthen you. He won’t interfere where He’s not wanted, though. If you need something, He wants you to ask. You’ve got to open up that line of communication. But when you do, nothing in the world will keep Him from giving you His full attention.
‘Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.’ (Psalm 27:10 NIV)
Consider keeping a prayer diary. Note down your conversations with God so you can look back and see how God has answered your prayers.
