I Pray

3 Jan
I pray.

I pray in the morning. I pray throughout the day. I pray at night before I go to bed.

I pray for my family. I pray for my friends. I pray for my church. I pray for our children’s ministry. I pray for the world.

But…

I am a talker. I like to talk on the phone. I like to talk over coffee. I just like to talk.

Unfortunately recently that whole talking thing filtered into my prayer life as well. I had stopped listening as much. I had forgotten that this was supposed to be a conversation.

My Abba wanted to speak to me and I wasn’t silent long enough to hear Him. I can’t tell you the exact moment I realized this. I just felt that pull to Him. You know the one where you just have to get alone with Him. Well over a few days of this time with Him, I just felt a gentle, loving “shhhhh…” in my spirit.

It was like something shifted inside me.

So today…

I pray.

But…

I listen more.
