Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.
Pray. Pray for your family and friends, pray for your neighbors, pray for the stranger down the street. We are told that we should constantly pray. But what does that mean exactly? Does God get tired of constantly hearing our voices?
God never tires of hearing from his beloved children. As a flawed human there are some times when the constant “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy PLEASE!” gets to me- but I am not God. The bible tells us that his ways are far above our ways- which is GREAT! So pray away! Because prayer is meant to be more than a laundry list of the stuff we want! There are more than just prayers of intercession, where are the prayers of thanksgiving? Joy?
Be happy sometimes when you pray- no parent wants to hear only the bad- that would get depressing- lets share the good stuff too! “Thank you God, we went to the store and my toddler only screamed like a Wildman for 5 minutes instead of 10!” “Thank you that the kids went to bed without a fuss- Them 4,569 Me 3!” “Holy You, there is an amusement park “Thomasland” that I can take my kids to, that is incredible!!!!”
Of course, while we’re praying- please watch over Bonnie and her family while she has surgery and they miss her mom!
