PRAYER

My prayers of gratitude and praise should be as frequent , intense and lengthy as my prayers of need and request.

  • Short prayers:
    • Thank you
    • Help
    • I will
    • I’m sorry
    • I won’t
    • I love you
    • Forgive me
    • Use me
    • Protect me

Dear God, don’t let my lack of understanding about you lead to an absence of faith in you, a reduction of love for you, an unwillingness to obey you, hesitancy to share you, and fear to praise you.

When Samuel said “Speak, for your servant hears” he was not referring only to physical hearing, but also to a willingness to obey whatever he might hear. Too often my reaction is “Speak, and your servant will consider hearing.” But when that is my attitude I’m really not being a servant, am I?
