Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. – Luke 18:1
God wants to talk to you. Because God loves you, and because you’re God’s kids, God wants to talk to you right now. He wants to hear from you. Very often, when we think of prayer, we think of a list of things that we need to go through. Things we need to ask God for. It almost becomes like an errand or like going to the gym. We know it would be really good for us if we prayed for these nine things, but somehow it’s sort of hard to find the time. One of the biggest mistakes that we make in our view of prayer is that we see it only as asking God for things rather than an ongoing conversation we have with God. Prayer is a conversation between you and God. Keep it simple and continue to converse with God today.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank you for being so easy to talk to. Help me to have a continual conversation with you. Thank you for loving me. Amen.
REFLECTION: How can I converse with God more throughout the day?
