Long Distance or a Short Line?

You have probably heard it, perhaps you have even said it, "I feel my prayers just hit the ceiling"
Do we pray to a God Who is far off? To a God Who sits high upon His throne?

Paul sought to disabuse us of our misconceptions with his letter to the Ephesians.

He first established in the readers minds the position of Jesus:

He raised Him (Jesus) from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places…" Ephesians 1:20

He then makes the following statement:

But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He love us…made us alive together with Jesus…and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places…" Ephesians 2:4-6

Our prayers have no ceiling between us and God. We just simply must turn our face toward Him and ask.
