prayer

So I went to Athens Church last Sunday. PS it was great. But the pastor who is on satellite from North point church in Alpharetta. He was very easy to listen to, no bible beating or condemnation, but a bit of sarcasm and making it more personal, made it a great sermon. He talked about prayer. He went through Philippians 4:4-7 i think. But the main point was how to really get into prayer. He started by saying how we are most holy when we are in serious situations. Those times when we forget everything, we confess everything, forgive everything. We are so in tune with God. But how can we be like that all the time. Through our prayer of course. But to really get into your prayer and admit what it really is that you want. Not just hey God, please let me get into this major or this school, or please make him call me back or anything we are wanting. But then admit why we want those things, then explain even more…because if I don’t I’m afraid that…this will happen. Example, I want to get into this major because it will help my future, if I dont im afriad I’ll end up in a job I dont like, and Im afraid that if that happens then I hate my life, and then …

Just keep explaining the real meanings and intentions behind your prayers. Tell him your inner most fears, admit to things that nobody else knows you fear, or that even you haven’t admitted to yourself. He gave some personal examples like that his kids won’t love him or that God doesn’t even know his name, and a few other things that took me back and really made me think. Wow if him, a preacher has intense fears yet can still keep his faith, maybe I should try to same but this time not be ashamed and really dig into my own self to realize what it really is that I’m afraid of.

That day I prayed that I would keep a good GPA. Shallow at first but then I told God, it’s because I know my classes are only getting harder and I need to give myself a cushion for the future. Why? because I want to get into the PT school of my choice, because if I don’t I don’t want my family and peers to think I’m a failure, because I feel like I put on a front that this is my future and this is what I will accomplish, because under that I want to impress my family, because under that I always feel like its a race for attention against my sisters. Because I’m the youngest and I fear that I’m the one always left behind.

After this prayer, I felt relieved like I confessed something to God that I thought he didn’t already know, because don’t we all do that, we know God knows everything about us, but we still think there are things that even God doesn’t know so we act that it’s not true. But it is, and to tell god out loud, that powerful.  And even to myself, I admitted things that I was pretending weren’t true, I discovered things about myself that I did not think we really true because it was so cliche to just say it straight. But freeing almost to understand myself better and talk about it with God.

Another point was where it said, “rejoice in the Lord” how easy is it to rejoice..in our job, our clothes,or friends, our success, our happiness. But rejoice in the Lord? How does that help us, because that will free us internally. There is so much more to scripture, we just read a versus and take out what we think and then focus on how it does not help us, but when we break it down and realize how it is more relevant than anything else.
