Here is an excerpt from September’s Issue of my newsletter: TO THE SAVING OF THE SOUL.
Praying is as important to our souls as breathing is to our bodies. I imagine that some people are asking:
“What do you mean?”
I mean, prayer is two-way communication with God: we talk to Him using our words and thoughts and listen to His still small voice. One action is out-flowing while the other is in-flowing.
Let us discuss LISTENING first.
God intended to commission Elijah to perform some great works. Elijah started living in a cave and the word of God came to him one day asking him what he was doing in the cave! Elijah tried to explain himself but God told him to go stand on the mountain. God literally told Elijah to position himself. Elijah obeyed and God passed by him while he was standing there. The scripture tells us that when God passed by a great and strong wind tore up the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces but God was not in the wind. After the wind had passed an earthquake came but God was not in the earthquake either. After the earthquake there was a fire but again, God was not in the fire. However, after the fire there was a still small voice, which Elijah heard and responded to with words and actions.

This issue of the newsletter is an introduction to the lessons about the different aspects of prayer. These short lessons will be posted on this blog throughout the month of September. Look forward to a wonderful blessing from them.
