The Price of Prayerlessness
READ | Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Imagine walking through a crowded airport. You can't move without bumping into someone. You're late for your flight, and a wheel just broke on your over-packed suitcase.
With no other option, you're forced to carry the luggage and slowly maneuver through the congested lobby toward the ticketing area.

Almost immediately, a young gentleman offers to carry your bags, but you refuse. When you realize the ticket counter is two levels up, you make your way to the stairs. Someone asks you if it would be easier to take the elevator. But you are determined to carry your bags.

As you finally make it to the top of the steps, your arms feel numb from the pressure of your luggage. Your legs are starting to buckle from the weight. Your back is aching from supporting the heavy load. Then, you spot a collection of unused luggage carts. But you ignore them, sure that you can handle the bags yourself.

Isn't this a silly story? Who would choose to carry such a heavy burden and ignore every opportunity to lay it down? Yet, many believers do just that. Our Father has called us to lay our cares at His feet. But when we fail to come to God in prayer, we're just as foolish as the person, weighed down by heavy baggage, staggering through the airport.

Are you trying to carry a burden greater than you can bear? Don't ignore God's offer to help. The truth is, we really can't "do it ourselves," and God never wanted us to try.
