Talk to Him
Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Ephesians 6:18
A life of constant prayer doesn’t mean that we spend all day with our heads bowed and our eyes closed. It means that our heart, our direct communication line to God, is always open, ready to talk with him at any time.
God is always with us. And he wants us to be alert to the fact that he is near. Think of how your spouse, child or parent would feel if they were with you all day long and you never acknowledged their presence. They’d probably feel hurt and unappreciated.
Now think about how God feels. Is it possible that he feels the same way when we go all day without speaking to him?
God wants to hear from you. He not only wants to hear about you and your needs, but also wants you to be others-focused. Remember, prayer isn’t just about you.
Take some time today to acknowledge God’s constant presence in your life. Share with him your needs and desires. But also, as you communicate with him, talk about the other people in your life and pray for their needs.
Dear God, thank you for your continuous presence in my life. Please forgive me for the times I’ve ignored you. Please help me to keep our communication lines open at all times. I also ask that you help me be more others-focused so I can be aware of their needs and know how to pray for them. In Jesus Christ’s name I pray, Amen.
