Well, why should I pray about this? Aren’t there more important things for God to worry about this? Aren’t there starving kids in the world, or hurts, or pains, or other things.
Why should I pray about this? It’s so insignificant.
That’s what we are tempted to think sometimes.
If you have ever thought that thought or struggled with that, listen to what Jesus says today in Matthew 10:29-31:
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
He says aren’t two sparrows sold for nothing, and God notices them? He even knows the very hairs upon your head.
He knows you. He loves you. He cares for you.
And whatever matters to you, really does matter to God.
No prayer that we pray insignificant. Really. God really cares about you today. Really. He really cares about your hurts, worries, and fears today.
Do not be afraid, or ashamed to pray to Him today. Don’t be afraid or worried to take your concerns to Him today.
He knows them. And He loves you. Today.
Your prayers matter to God today. No matter what they are. No matter how you may feel about them.
Even you feel like they don’t really “matter” they do matter to God.
Today, no prayer is insignificant. Give your worries and pains to God. Today, pray to God in all your places, in all your ways, and in all life.
Today, God cares about you more than you’ll ever know. Today, He longs to hear your concerns.
Today, give them to God!
