Discipleship -IV

The next item is "prayer." As we have written recently, prayer is conversation with God. It is the place where man can open his heart freely to God, focusing his heart toward God.  Here God confirms his words, his intentions with man. He confirms a man's purpose,  a man's place in God's world,  God's life and God's mission.

Man also invites God to act in the areas of his concern. He invites God into his family, his work, his neighborhood,  his hobbies, his goals, and his pursuits.

And it is perfectly permissible to invite God into the every day, mundane events of life. A person might get a parking place quicker. Or a trip to the grocery store might move from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
