In the Kingdom of God prayer is implied.
In the life of the disciples of Christ, prayer is essential.
In the world around us, answers to impossible problems can only come through prayer... actual praying.
If this is true, then we need to ask this question, "Why do many (very many) Christians pray little-to-none?"
In prayer, our own selves must be fully subordinated to God. Self-subordination, self-denial, selflessness, are all holy paths to God, but not popular paths to take. This surrender of ourselves, both the posture of it and the results of it, are not common practice in the world, but they are holy practice in the Kingdom of God. Here are ten facets of the gem of prayer and praying. They are holy - Jesus-like - and signs of true spiritual formation.
To surrender ourselves to God so that He may care for our souls, we must submit to Him…
Start praying - Let God in - Surrender all - Be overcome with Joy - Be clay in His hands.
