Bure, who has always openly discussed her Christian views, believes in the power of prayer, telling CBN’s Faithwire invoking God regularly has “transformed” her life.
“Prayer is my immediate connection to God,” she said. “That’s how I talk to Him and communicate with Him.”
Bure, the new chief content officer at faith and family-friendly TV network Great American Family, said she spends time reading Scripture but it’s prayer and communication with God that most bolsters her faith.
“Just like any relationship, when you are spending time with that person and you’re talking with them, that’s where your relationship grows and develops,” Bure said. “And you nurture that over time.”
Watch Bure discuss prayer:
The Great American Family star said she has learned to “love God more and more” as she has increasingly turned to Him in prayer.
“I get to know Him through prayer and I pray about all things, not just the big things, and not just the times when times are hard or troublesome,” she said. “I pray in the joy and the thanksgiving and the mundane of life — just everyday things that don’t even seem that important, except I know they are important to God.”
Through prayer, Bure said she’s assured the Lord is with her and will never leave her side, in both the good and the bad.
“He carries me when … I can’t take a step on my own,” she said. “And He celebrates with me when it’s time to celebrate.”
Gratitude is a big part of Bure’s prayer life. She shared an example some might find “silly” but one that helps illustrate how she views the integration of thankfulness and prayer.
“Before I eat, I pray before my meals,” she said, adding she also takes a moment to pray for those who made the food, the farmer who helped put it on the table, and others involved in the process.
Bure continued, “When we recognize that God’s given all of us these things through other people in our lives … it just reminds me how great He is.”
