February 9: Knowing who we’re praying to – Love

One of the big hindrances in prayer is not knowing to whom we’re praying.

If we’re in line at our favorite coffee shop and a stranger starts a conversation with us, it can get awkward quickly – we don’t know his position on God, politics, sports – so we’re not sure what to say to him.

The key to talking with God better, is to know Him better. For the next few days we’ll look at how we can know Him.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

1 John 4:8

John chides those that don’t know God, noting that He is love.

God showed His love by sending His Son to take our place

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

What are other ways God shows His love to you?
