Colossians 2:4. Be devoted to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving.

Devoted to prayer. How underused our prayer room is at church. How underused our altar rails are for people to bend their knees in the presence of others and pray. How as so few are willing to pray aloud. It seems we are embarrassed or ashamed of prayer. Prayer is a wonderful privilege. People aren’t allowed to initiate a conversation with a king unless a king invites them to speak. God is King of all and has given us permission to speak to Him at any time. He is always listening. Like a parent eager to hear their child’s first word, God is always eager to hear us. Quiet prayer within our minds are heard by Him. He also likes to hear our physical voices both in private and in public. Our question is why do we hesitate? Each must answer that for themself.
