Dream Big, Pray Big
One thing that I have been learning lately is that we unintentionally use prayer to effectively put God in a box.
Ever think of that?
If our God is the God that created the universe, and is bigger than the biggest thing you can imagine, shouldn't our prayers be the same?
If we really believed He is that big, then why do we still pray small, vague prayers? I mean, why? Why pray if it's something that you are sure that you can do, or at least do with a little help from God? That's called not being dependent, or just talking to yourself.
So, armed with knowing that our prayers should match the size of our God, practice making your prayers BIGGER than anything you can do in this world--because it's not about you or dependent on you, remember? (Ephesians 2:4-10). Also, be aware of quick, limiting words that you may pray unknowingly.
Because God shows up in our every day life, we have to learn to not be afraid of the big things He is capable of in our lives--He can move mountains and stars and hearts, and the great thing is, it's all for His glory.
I don't know about you, but I am still continuing to learn how much He cares for me, and prayer is one way that I can learn to love God more, my greatest calling in life.
When you pray big, God is honored, and in turn He honors big prayers.
