So, because my mind doesn’t know how to quit, I’ve been thinking…
To gain an audience with the President, we’d have to go through every invasive process. (And still probably be denied.)
And, to chat with a company CEO, we’d need to justify our request for the boss’ time.
But, to bend the ear of the Creator…the (Big L) Lord of (little l ) lords…the One whom all other gods fear??
Well, that’s simple.
Humbly call on His name.
Bam! There we are in His presence.
The fact that He bends low to meet us in prayer is more than this lover of words can articulate.
Thank you, sweet Father for being ever-near your people. We are nothing without You.
Oh, to be a pleasing incense rising up to God on one another’s behalf. Tweet This
Sometimes, it’s hard to pray the same prayer yet again for ourselves. Even though we trust He hears and cares, at times we just ain’t got another prayer in us.
Enter the family of God. That’s where we come in, hold each others arms up, and pray for one another. And, there’s not much more comforting than knowing our hearts and needs are being lifted before the Comforter Himself! Amen?
Friend, how can we pray for you today? Whether a detailed request, a name, an initial, or an unspoken request—if you’re comfortable, please share—so together we might storm the throne on our knees.
