I Timothy 2:1-4 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
Prayer is the action that brings us closer to God and closer to fellowship with each other. It is with prayer and intimate time with God that we start to see his plans for us revealed. When we come before him, it’s not only to make our requests known but to also praise him for who he is, thank him for what he’s done and listen for his voice leading and directing us. As believers we MUST always remain focused on strengthening our prayer life and time spent in his presence. It is through prayer and seeing those prayers answered that we come to know the true faithfulness and miracle working power of our Savior. Verse 4 "..come to the knowledge of truth". The Lord desires for us to come to know the truth. The truth that is him, truth that he is our comforter, provider, healer, deliverer, waymaker, our confidence is found in him and we are made strong through his power. I challenge you to spend more time before the Father so you will come to know his truth and experience firsthand his power in your life.
Always remember, first things first: PRAY
