Prayer is Food for the Soul

Blessed are you, LORD, a king to be praised in adoration.

 

As we all know our bodies require food for strength to keep it functioning as it should.  It can only go so long without the proper nourishment.  What about our soul? Does it need to be fed?  How would one feed his or her soul?  These are some things I will discuss in this post.  Please feel free to share your comments.  Please be respectful of others.  Any negative or derogatory comments will be deleted.

 

One way someone may feed their soul is through the practice of prayer.  Prayer can be viewed as essential for one’s livelihood. It is daily communion with God.  Most people eat three meals a day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to feed their physical bodies.

This offers the body strength, helps it fight off infection, and can cleanse the body of toxins.  

Our soul has many of the same needs as our physical body. It longs for companionship;  which can be found through prayer.  It needs strengthening and needs to be in balance with our body.  Have you ever thought about when you pray or how many times a day you pray?  Some religions, such as Judaism recommend praying three times a day.  They have morning prayers, afternoon prayers, and evening prayers.  In Judaism, it is

“customary to pray three times a day, corresponding to the three patriarchs, the three times of temple sacrifice, and Biblical examples of praying three times a day (i.e., Daniel).”  http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Prayers/Daily_Prayers/daily_prayers.html

Image  Prayer is so essential to our soul that Scripture is filled with examples.  We have the Prayer of Jabez, the prayer of Hanah, Abraham prayed, Daniel, Job, and the list goes on.  The book of Psalm is filled with David’s petitions to God.  Prayer is not just for pastors and teachers, moms and dads, prayer is your personal communication with God.  You don’t have to petition Him for a need, just have a conversation with Him.  During your prayer, don’t forget to listen.  Conversation is a two way street.  Both parties need to give their input.  God has plenty to tell us if we will only get quiet enough to hear Him.

Prayer is not just for pastors and teachers, moms and dads, or grandparents. It is your personal communication with God.  Walk with Him as Adam and Eve did in the garden and enjoy His presence.

Blessings,

About Pastor Regina

Pastor Regina Sanders is a wife, mother, pastor, author, and teacher of Scripture. In January 2016 the Lord blessed her with an international satellite radio broadcast, allowing her to be heard beyond the borders of the United States. She was heard in places such as Hong Kong, Germany, and Canada. This broadcast lasted only about 4 ½ months as she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer in May of 2016. Pastor Regina smiles and says, “God has a sense of humor. I was teaching a group about coming out of their shell of introversion. I was writing another book on this topic, and I had this radio broadcast, as well as, my weekly YouTube uploads, and I found myself in the hospital for 11 days. Upon coming home, I found myself either in the bed or on the couch unable to continue with the tasks I had before me. Lord, you healed me of introversion, and I find myself feeling completely isolated…” Today, Pastor Regina shares her journey through the valley of the shadow of death.
