Note from Eric: This is my my all-time favorite spot at The Ranch, a place where you can talk to God in prayer. You can also use this page to send us your prayer requests privately and we’ll be glad to pray for you.
Here’s a quiet spot where you can spend some time alone with God, just the two of you.
If you’ve never put your faith in Christ and would like to see how you can be forgiven of your sins and live forever with him in heaven, visit A Leap Of Faith!
If you are a Christian, then you know that Jesus has already made a leap of faith for you when he died on the cross. He loved you so much he was willing to give up his life for you so that you could live.
If he was willing to die for you, you can be sure there’s nothing he would withhold from you, unless he had something better in mind. He’s already paid the greatest price for you.
I’d like you to read the following words spoken by Jesus. Then I’ve included a spot below where you can say a quiet prayer to God, and listen for his response.
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit– fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.” (John 15:13-16)
I know for me it sometimes helps to write out my prayer. It helps me focus my thoughts and also see when God has answered. I’ve included a box below where you can write out your prayer, and another box where you can write what you sense God might be saying in response to your prayer.
When you’re finished, you can either erase these boxes and no one will see them, or you can press “Submit” and one of us here at The Ranch will be glad to pray personally for your request.
Remember, too, that Jesus has already given his life for you, so there’s nothing he would withhold from you unless he had something better in mind for you. I like the way Henry Blackaby puts it in his book Experiencing God:
“Oh, God, if I ever give You a request and You have more to give me than I am asking, cancel my request!”
Enjoy your time with God.
