If we don’t learn to pray, we’ll only learn to play at the life God has given us. But when we pray, we need to go to the head of the table. God sets the table and invites us to join Him there.

Listen carefully, we come into this Christian life by faith in Jesus, but we live this Christian life in the faith of Jesus. Jesus went straight to the Father. Don’t just believe in God, BELIEVE GOD! We must go straight to Him who is our Heavenly Father, who sits at the head of the table with all our wants, worries, and weaknesses. In the name of (success & victory of) Jesus we can go to the head of the table. Praise God!
