Basic Course 3–Prayer

When you stop to think about it, our modern means of communication would probably be totally incomprehensible to someone living only a few generations ago. Yet without a second thought we pick up the telephone and talk with someone thousands of miles away, or send a letter via e-mail to someone on the other side of the world, which we’re confident they’ll receive in a matter of minutes.

Although the concept is probably as inconceivable to those who have never tried it as the telephone or the Internet would be to our ancestors, connecting with Jesus through prayer is just as simple, just as real, and just as practical as picking up the phone and calling your closest friend.—And you’ll never hear a busy signal, you’ll never get an answering machine, and there are no long-distance charges!

In this issue of Activated we’ve got some great articles on prayer—our “hotline to Heaven” and channel of communication with Jesus. We would also be happy to pray for you or a loved one, if you need some prayer support. Just let us know what to pray for, and we’ll bring your request before the Lord along with you. Jesus promised, “If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven.” (Matthew 18:19)

Until next time, may God bless and keep you and yours
