No Limitations in prayer
Let’s make this as brief and direct as possible. When I was younger I would listen to others pray, as a way to learn to pray. I still do that at times. I am inspired by many prayers I hear, even to the point of tears at times. However that is not always the case, I have heard some prayers that make me cringe. Prayers filled with doubt, prayers filled with fear, prayers that already say “I don’t know if God will.” Do not make limitations in prayer. From his word, we know that God will do exceedingly abundantly, above all that we may ask for. Many are even limited in what they ask of God. There is no request too small, neither is there a request too big. Do not place limitations in prayer.
2And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, 3and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4“Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.…
This verse holds the key to an effective Christian life. It holds the key to ministry, and all else. Unless your prayers become like those of a child, you will hold back God’s goodness. As a child you will ask your father for the smallest of things, to pull your ball stuck in a tree, and the bigger things, to provide and protect him/her. There is no limitation to a father’s ability in his child’s eyes. My younger sister refuses to believe that there is anything that I cannot do. To her, there is nothing that I cannot fix. That innocence and ridiculous faith is what drives prayers to your heavenly father’s lap and springs responses. There are no limitations in prayer ladies and gentlemen. There are no limitations to what can do, there are no limitations to what he wants to do. He wants to be involved in your small issues, just as much as he wants to be involved in the bigger issues. No prayer is too small for your father to handle, neither is there one to big for him to handle. Let nothing place limitations in prayer.
