Yeah, me too.
Next question… and be honest…
Have you ever been that person?
I think we all have.
And worst of all, I think we’re all guilty of doing it to the One who loves us best.
Let’s talk prayers today.
Yeah, I know… we talk prayers every day!
These are, after all, Prayer Prompts, (hopefully) designed to give you something different to think about.
A conversation starter, if you will.
Every morning, when I write these, I pray that God will give me a topic that will benefit the reader but also benefit me!
And most of all – glorify Him!
And today’s Prompt is based on something God’s really put on my heart – are our prayers conversations, or nothing more than divine checklists we expect God to handle?
Obviously, He wants to help us with those things.
But He also wants a relationship.
Going back to the original question, if you have a relationship based on constantly doing someone a favor, and then they aren’t around, is it really a relationship?
James 4:8 says, “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
I love that.
“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.”
How do you grow close to someone?
You know the answer – you talk to them.
Today, as you pray, ask God to show you how to talk.
Tell Him you want a relationship based on discussion and sharing, not a to-do list.
Ask Him to help you draw close to Him.
