He’s The One

He’s the One

By: Susan Rasinski

“I can’t pray out loud.”

“I don’t like to pray in a group because I don’t sound as good as others.”

There are many reasons people give for not wanting to pray and we can understand each one. Who are we trying to impress?

Is it for the awe of those around us that we want to sound eloquent?

Why do we feel a need to say the right things?

It is not always easy to speak in front of others, but we need to realize we are talking to the One who created all things, the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings. He loves us more than we can possibly know. God says we are the apple of His eye (Zechariah 2:8). 1 John 3:1 (NIV) says that God lavishes His love on us.

So the next time you are asked to pray, take a moment to realize how amazing that truth is.

Close your eyes and talk to the One who cherishes you.

You are ushering your group into the presence of God.
