PRAYER GIVES YOU ACCESS TO GOD

PRAYER GIVES YOU ACCESS TO GOD

“We can come before God…without fear.”  Eph 3:12 NCV

Dr. James Kennedy said: “I read an interesting book by an unbeliever who attempted to ‘do in’ the Christian faith. Despite his lack of belief, I found…something he said [insightful] regarding prayer. He called it ‘the most incredible conceit in the history of mankind,’ arguing that if you worked for General Motors as a lowly employee and wanted to see the boss, you wouldn’t have the remotest chance…Think about it. What would happen if a citizen tried to speak to the President of the United States? I’ve thought about putting in a call just to see…I’d probably speak to a secretary or an assistant to somebody, but not likely the President…‘And so,’ says my skeptical friend in his book, ‘what an incredible conceit to suppose that at any moment we can talk to the boss of the whole shebang.’ And indeed the concept of prayer would be an incredible conceit…if it weren’t true. But it is…and it’s the most incredible condescension on the part of a gracious God. You could probably never speak to the highly placed people in this world, yet the most highly placed person in the universe—‘the boss of the whole shebang’—waits patiently to hear what you have to say. ‘We can come before God with freedom and without fear… through faith in Christ.’ Don’t you find that amazing? This day…You can talk to the boss, tell Him your worries and cares, share with Him your triumphs and joys—and He always has time to listen.” Prayer gives you access to God!

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you ought to publish more on this subject matter, it
may not be a taboo matter but usually people do not talk about such topics.
To the next! Many thanks!!
