I am so glad you have joined me online here at Beliefnet.com and I am so excited about sharing with you during the next weeks ahead the messageof my new book "Get Off Your Knees and Pray." For me, this is the most important book I have ever written because prayer is not just something we do - it's who we are. I have spent so much of my life trying to be "good enough" for God. I was constantly trying to get all my spiritual "ducks in a row" before I would come to Him. But that is really a lonely way for any of us to live. We have been created for intimate conversation with our heavenly Father. Yes - I know this might be hard to believe for some of you but you can come to God just as you are and be totally loved and accepted. As you read through the book, my prayer is that you'll begin a new journey of intimacy with God that you've never experienced before.
What I would like for you to do is let me know what questions you have about prayer over the next few weeks. Just simply post your questions in the comments area of this journal posting. From the questions I receive I’m going to post some video responses. Some things that we’ll talk about could include:
Why is prayer important?
Why is it so hard to pray?
It seems to me that God isn't answering my prayers. Why?
Will God help me even if I was the one that got myself into this mess?
plus a lot more! So, please, ask whatever prayer questions you have.
So here we go. Get ready for a wonderful journey as we all fall in love with Jesus more and more each day as we "Get Off Our Knees and Pray"!
