Prayer is the key to developing an intimate relationship with God. Prayer is the Means, initiated by God, used to change our hearts. All that God desires for us is His best and He will not have that we settle for anything to the contrary.
That’s what prayer does. It takes away the often selfish desires of our hearts and replaces it with His. More so prayer helps remove our wrong desires. There are many times when we assume that we are asking God for the best yet in actual fact we are not. The Psalmist understood this well. Let’s’ read Psalm 27.4 ‘one thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to enquire in His temple.’
Now I like that word enquire for it is to 'seek after and find out.' It brings forth an understanding that we once never had. Prayer is the key to developing this intimate relationship with God. Our enquiring reveals the heart of God for us. We Enquire by going to God!
