Seasons of Prayer

Your prayer time may not always be an emotional high experience.  Surprised?

I was.

I had read several books on the power of prayer.  I could quote testimonies of life-changing prayer encounters of saints throughout history.  I knew scriptures that displayed glory-filled prayer miracles.  And truth be known, that’s what I wanted, all the time.

Truth be told, it’s not always like that.  We should never judge our prayer lives by the highlights of others’ testimonies.  They have behind the scenes seasons just like us.  But any encounter with God is a life-changing prayer.

Solomon was right.  After all, he was pretty wise.  He said there would be seasons in life.  In those seasons your prayers will match the mood of your heart.

There will be times when you sing His praises,

There will be times when you scream your frustrations.

There will be times when you confidently ask,

There will be times when you groan in confusion.

There will be times of cheering His answers,

There will be times of weeping the agony of defeat.

There will be times He sits close and instructs,

There will be times when you plead, “Where are you?”

There will be times when you hear, “Well done!”

There will be times when you lament, “Woe to me!”

There will be times when you intercede for others,

There will be times when you beg for yourself.

There will be times of silence and solace,

There will be times of jubilant dancing.

But in all the times, the goal is to behold Him
