What the gospel does is it lifts us to a whole new spiritual dimension that is only revealed in the gospel mystery. It produces a whole new paradigm we never knew existed. Paul calls it a new 'dispensation' Eph 3: This article will show many things about how the gospel works in us -- empowering us to live the Christian life better by accident than we ever could on purpose.
My friend Debra Fehsenfeld is a passionate follower of Jesus, a wife and mother of four, a lover of all people, and a praying woman. If you had to describe prayer to a new Christian, what would you say? We see things, hear things, wonder about things, believe things, understand things.
Prayer is what we do. Through interacting with God and seeking His kingdom in all that we see, hear, wonder, believe, and understand, we actually enter into the incredible privilege of working with God to make all that is wrong right. What motivates you to pray? Aside from the fact that I really do want to obey Jesus who has told us to pray Luke I pray because I have great needs and so does the world around me.
I pray because I believe God intends to do something about those needs, and I want to see Him do it and be part of what He does. When and where do you pray?
Both pieces of equipment are in our basement, and there is usually very little distraction. I do pray at other times and in any number of places, but these would certainly be less intentional times of prayer though no less real or meaningful; they are usually responsive prayers—immediate responding to immediate circumstances or thoughts.
The thing relevant for us all, I believe, is that there must be a regular time where we arrange our days and lives to be alone with the One we love and are seeking to learn from.
We have the example of Jesus confirming the importance of such a time. If Jesus needed set times of solitude with the Father, I do as well. When my husband, Del, and I go on a date, we have the opportunity to really catch up with each other and make a deeper heart-to-heart connection.
We obviously connect and touch base throughout the day, but these set-aside times are about us connecting on a deeper level. What increased your commitment to—and hunger for—prayer? Hands down, I started really praying intentionally when I began to realize that my children were going to need to make their own choices in life one day.
I eagerly anticipate those daily spaces of solitude with my Father. We are so together in these spaces of solitude. What do you think is the most important thing to understand about prayer? Prayer is doing life with God; aware of Him always; interacting with and seeking Him in everything.“We exercise for a purpose: but in your everyday life, too.
