Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire? – Corrie Ten Boom. 

Pastor Greg asked this question on Sunday morning and many of us had to re-evaluate our prayer time.  Do we only pray when we need to?  Do we only read the Word when we are in a tough spot?  Do we only attend church when we need something from God?  That would definitely be the spare tire approach to a relationship with God.

The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing – to be in constant communication with God.  The result of living this way has so many benefits.  Our spirit becomes so “in-tune “ with His Spirit that we have a constant adviser in our everyday life. 

I don’t know about you, but I’ve done life my way and I don’t like the results.  I’m pushing in extra close this holiday season to listen for His ways.  I want to let Him “steer” my life.

If you haven’t done so already, pick up one of the Nehemiah journals this Sunday and let it help give your prayer life a boost.

Thankful to be on this journey with you Gateway family!
