Pray Like a Child

Mark 10:14-1514 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

Jesus wants us to be without pretense when we come to him in prayer.

I love when I hear Alyanna prays or when Mika ask me to buy America. They have no clue of my powers. When we come to prayer we don’t come to a God who has limits. That is why God calls us to have faith like a child.

The problem is we are trying to be spiritual to get it right. We know we don’t need to clean up our act in order to become a Christian but when it comes to praying we forget that. We like adults, try to fix ourselves up. In contrast, Jesus wants us to come to him like little children, just as we are.

Come to me all you who have learned how to concentrate in prayer and I will give you rest??? It says come to me all of you who are weary and heavy laden.

What would touch the heart of God.

A long flowery prayer asking for his help or a sincere childlike attitude of coming to him because we are helpless. Sometimes the word HELPPPPPP packs more power than our King James prayers. Don’t try to get the prayer right; just tell God where you are and what’s on your mind. That’s what little children do. They come as they are, with runny noses and all. Like the disciples they say what is on their mind. Huwag nang denial king and queen.

HOW TO PRAY LIKE A CHILD

  1. Ask like a child.

Ask anything and everything often.

2. Believe like a child.

Be confident of God’s power and love. Trust. Don’t be embarrassed by how needy your heart is and how much it needs to cry out for grace. Just pray.

3. Play like a child

How do we structure our child’s play? How do we structure our adult conversations? We don’t.

Starting today resolve to pray like a child!!!

Happy 6th day of fasting!!!!
