Loving my prayer time…

When we do things consistently, they become habit and then they become lifestyle. Even before I decided my word of the year was PRAY, I’d subscribed to the command “pray without ceasing”. I often find myself conversing with God throughout the day on many topics, so much so that I truly FEEL as though He’s a friend walking right beside me.

A couple years ago one of our youth asked me to name someone I’d like to have dinner with that I don’t normally talk with. When I said Mozart, he said I failed… as a youth leader I should have said “Jesus”. At first, I was sad that I “failed” so I pondered why it never occurred to me to say Jesus. Then I realized it’s because I feel as though I talk with Him all the time.. I’ve never talked with Mozart, even in my mind.

I am convinced, more than ever, that the God wants to speak to us and through us, and one of the ways He does this is through prayer time. I’ve been starting my day with devotion and pray and I’ve got to tell you, my prayer list is long!

I can’t imagine starting my day any other way..

I’d like to hear how you pray… do you set specific time aside or do you pray throughout the day? Only at meals? Bedtime?

Be blessed today, my friends.

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.

    1. Thank you for sharing this. I am sorry for your experience with the Father. I can understand why you might stop praying if He always said no. I am hoping that, by sharing my prayer journal real time in my blog, people will see that He DOES answer prayers… and maybe you’ll begin to pray again… Sometimes His answer is no and sometimes yes…. and sometimes it’s wait… but it’s always because He loves us and wants what’s best for us. Keep reading! (You’ll probably see something of both)

    2. Thank you for sharing this. I am sorry for your experience with the Father. I can understand why you might stop praying if He always said no. I am hoping that, by sharing my prayer journal real time in my blog, as well as sharing past answers to prayers, people will see that He DOES answer prayers… and maybe you’ll begin to pray again… Sometimes his answer IS no, and it’s hard to understand, but he ALWAYS wants what’s best for us…. ❤️
