My sister and her family all live in North Carolina, so seeing Finn Jackson was not something I could just hop over and do, but with the blessing of technology, I was able to Skype (video chat) with both mother and child within an hour of his birth. The amazing thing is that even just a few years ago this would not have been possible.
When telling a friend about the recent Skype session, I said how neat it would be to be able to have a spiritual Skype with God. My friend then reminded me, we do. It’s called prayer!
Prayer is that time when we can go to God our Father and speak to Him about all that is weighing on our hearts and minds. We can also share our joys and blessings with Him. The beauty of prayer is that we do not need any fancy piece of technology; we can simply talk to him anywhere and anytime.
We can hear God speaking back to us through His Word, the Bible, and God tells us over and over again, “Lo, I am with you even until the end of the age.” (Matt 28: 20).
What a true blessing we have been given.
