prayer.

God listens to my prayers
 wherever i am.

whether i am walking, driving across town, or sending a prayer heaven-ward from my computer, he delights in hearing from me, not just once a day, but throughout the day.
as psalms 40:1 and 34:15 say, God turns to me and his ears are attentive to my prayers.

i became even more excited about the effects of praying continuously when i noticed that throughout the Bible, God used short prayers to accomplish great things, such as raising the dead or parting the red sea.

it dawned on me that though it's wonderful to have extended sessions of prayer, short prayers can also have a big impact. that encourages me to pray throughout the day. prayer puts me in touch with the God who is in charge of everything and who promises to be faithful.

what an inspiration for me this morning. sometimes i get discouraged...i am not a mom who has a specific "God" time set aside each morning. i know it's poor and pathetic, and i have no excuses, other than it's not a priority...but i just don't right now...
however, i am the queen of praying...anywhere, anytime, a lot throughout the day, so this calmed my spirit today. enjoy the day ~mk.
