"Starting Point"

"Pray without ceasing".  1 Thessalonians 5:17

There come times in all our lives when we feel as though we have to "regroup".  There are times when we don't know what to do.  There are times when we need guidance and direction.  There are times when we need a "word".  There are times when we need a "fresh start".  We feel as though we have grown weary, negligent and cold.  But how does that happen?  What do we do to get it?  We go back to the "starting point".

The starting point is the foot of the cross.  It is at the foot of the cross, when we humbled ourselves in prayer, that our Christian life began.  In other words, we go back to the Lord in prayer.  Prayer is what got us started-- we prayed to the Lord a prayer of repentance and acceptance of Him as our Savior and Lord.  Now, we have to do the same thing.  We have to go to prayer. 

There are no short cuts.  There is no "quick fix".  There is no alternate route.  Prayer is your answer.  Prayer got you "in".  Prayer will keep you in.  Prayer will direct you.  Prayer will guide you.  Prayer will lift you up.  Prayer will re-align you.  Prayer will give you clarity.  Prayer will give you a fresh start again.

What is your answer?  What do you do?  How do you get refreshed?  How do you get revived?  How do you get direction?  How do you get answers?  You pray.  Sounds simple, but it is the answer and solution.

Have a great day.  Your answer is:  pray!
