Praise and Prayer

"Praise awaits You, O God, in Zion; to You our vows will be fulfilled. O You Who hear prayer, to You all men will come. When we were overwhelmed by sins, You forgave our transgressions. Blessed are those You choose and bring near to live in Your courts! We are filled with the good things of Your house, of Your holy temple." Psalm 65:1-4 (NIV)

There are times in each of our lives when we think we cannot bear the burdens that come upon us. We struggle with temptations and trials and often seek relief where it cannot be found. But there is One Who is waiting to hear from us, One Who is offering His shoulder to place our burdens upon and carry them for us if we will only allow Him.

Prayer is essential to the Christian. By communing with the Lord in prayer, it draws us closer to Him and enables us to hear His voice more clearly. God desires that we come to Him with everything that makes us weary or troubles our heart. He is ready to heal, to lift up, and to carry us through the trials of life.
