How's Your Prayer Life?
Don't get under any legalism...guilt...shame...or condemnation of having a "prayer life".
The phrase "prayer life" had me under much guilt, shame, and condemnation for years because I didn't think I was praying enough.
Then people would ask me "How's your prayer life?"
There are only two answers to that question.
"It's good" or "It's not good".
Both are based upon preoocupation with self and religious performance.
When I understood that God, through his grace freely given to us in Jesus, removed me from a religious performance based upon have to's, formulas, and lists, and moved me into a personal relationship with him as my Father based upon his love and acceptance, I was set free.
Today, the phrase "prayer life" is far removed from my mind.
As a result, there is no more shame and guilt.
I now enjoy a loving relationship with God where I talk with him openly and honestly, without fear of rejection or condemnation, about anything at anytime fully assured of his love and acceptance.
My prayer for you is that you are set free from religious have to's, formulas, and lists, and you begin to enjoy a loving relationship with your Father where you talk with him openly and honestly without fear of rejection or condemnation, fully assured of his love and acceptance.
