Prayer is so simple, so familiar, yet so under utilized.
How often we say: “O God please.....” yet never say: “O God, what do you need from me today?”
We rely on God to hear our prayers. Even the ones we can’t speak but only think about.
We affirm that God is with us, and count on God’s presence to see us through the tough times.
Yet we rarely take the time to pause and converse with God about our life.
We are reluctant to learn the “common language” that’s used to communicate with God: Prayer.
Most of the time our prayers are like a one way monologue, all talking, rarely listening.
Yet God is always there, patiently waiting until we pause enough to listen. Until we put aside our agenda and shopping list of wants and needs and begin to hear the words Gods has in store for us.
It is like visiting a doctor, pouring out our ailments, then leaving before the remedy is offered.
Read again Chapter 11: 1-13 of the Gospel in Luke. And then reflect on your prayer life.
How could it become stronger? Could you use a spiritual mentor or prayer friend?
Have you learned the language well enough to be comfortable with it?
How Goes it with your soul?
