“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments..” – {John 14:15, 21}. Since prayer is commanded in Scripture, and in complying to that command it then becomes an expression of love to Him, even such words when perplexed, “Help LORD,” as that is an attitude of faith which pleases Him -{Heb 11:6} and the act of faith and  prayer is an act of Love! 


SPEAK TO YOURSELF, “Why pray? What’s the use?” because in doing so I can express love to God and fulfill the first and greatest commandment which is to LOVE the LORD your God with all your heart, MIND ” – “Teacher, which commandment is the greatest in the Law?” Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.”-{Matt 22:36-38}. 

NOTE; it says LOVE HIM with your….MIND. SO WE must THINK RIGHT…. and TO LOVE HIM… WE MUST THINK ON TRUTH…{Read Phil 4:8; John 17:17.}… and THEN we can Know what to DO…{READ Phil 4:9}… and so we have to change the way we THINK

PRAYER is a fulfillment of one of His commands and in turn is then an expression of DOING HIS revealed will and….therefore when we pray, and doubts would pound or seek to mock or tempt us to despair and quit, we can speak to ourselves,

“WHY are you praying?” Answer yourself “I pray ultimately as it is a way for me to express LOVE TO GOD.”

 A HIGHER MOTIVATION; Have you ever realized that your praying can be  an active expression of loving your God? Probably not. But you can pray as an expression of love to Him! God is glorified through revealing Himself in answered prayers-{John 15:7} but our goal is often answered prayers for our sake if we are honest as our true motivation, but here is a higher motivation…praying because it is an expression of my LOVE FOR HIM! And you can do it anywhere. You can even love God on a sick bed, in a difficult situation, there is no place you are cut off from access to Him through the LORD Jesus, and you can, though no one see you be LOVING GOD!! How exhilarating. THOUGH NO ONE SEE YOU, HE DOES!

PRAY ON….you Are Loving Him and fulfilling what He says is the first and greatest command! Love God and PRAY ON:)

I Pray God strengthen you to Pray on, knowing YOU ARE expressing Love to Him as you do
