Our honest prayer before God is evidence that we understand the ways He loves, cherishes, sees, and hears us. Through prayer, we can stand beside the same well where Abraham’s servant Hagar stood and acknowledged God saying, “You are the living One who sees me” (Genesis 16:14). When we pray, we are affirming the same.
Why do we often hide from this privilege? Why do we avoid God, the One who sees us as we are and stands ready to provide and answer us in his holy, timely way?
In this eight-week study on the prayers of Job, Ruth, Hannah and David, you are invited to grow your prayer life by facing your honest need and bringing your whole self before God. Acknowledging God as the One who guides your path can change your heart. It can take you past fear and into faith, strength and hope.
