Adding Self Evaluation to Prayer Time

This evening I learned the Hebrew word for prayer, tefillah, means to “self evaluate”. Too many times prayer is used to ask for something. I’ve started using my morning prayer time to talk to my Poppa and listen for His voice, make it a TWO way conversation. Yes, God can speak to me in so many ways. It may be a song, a picture, nature, or the still voice whispering to my spirit man. When I read the meaning of tefillah it really spoke to my heart. “4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you. 5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.” 2 Corinthians 13:4-6 It caused me to reflect inwardly and ask my Poppa to help me with the things I know need to be changed. I am weak and have weaknesses, but through God’s power I can overcome those weaknesses because in Him I am strong. However, I need to acknowledge them first. Yes, self evaluation is a good thing. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
