My #1 Reason to Pray (minute vlog answer)

My #1 Reason to Pray. When Jesus was on earth, He taught His disciples to pray for everything from forgiveness to their daily bread. But if God knows what we need already, why pray? Today’s minute vlog shares my top reason to pray. Check it out . . .

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.” ~Max Lucado~

This week I’m linking up with Gratituesdays, Teach Me Tuesdays, Winsome Wednesdays, Thankful Thursday, Thought-provoking Thursday, Hearts 4 Home Thursdays, Journey of Faith Friday.

  1. Great vlog, Renee, and I love the quote by Lucado. So often we think that our prayers aren’t working because we’re not articulate and we don’t know exactly how to pray. But faith is what prompts God to act, not our beautiful words. 🙂

  2. Hi Renee – funny, both the devotionals I read this morning spoke on prayer and being genuine and who you are in prayer. Kind of feel like God’s trying to tell me something? 🙂 Thanks for linking up, look forward to seeing you there again next week
    God bless

  3. Great vlog. Great reminder.

  4. Great vlog Renee! Looking forward to hearing what you have in store for us in your next devotional series 😉

  5. Wow. What an excellent reminder. I never thought of it that way.

  6. As a relatively new Christian (about 6 years), the more I learn, the more I realize I don’t know. I love this perspective on why to pray, and had never considered that that was the thing that Jesus focused upon with his disciples. Thanks for another wonderful bit of information in my walk!
