Prayer seems to be my go to topic lately. Not sure why. Just is.
I came to understand today that it’s okay for our prayers to be relevant. We often get so discouraged in prayer because, honestly, we get bored. We don’t want to pray for our third cousin Susie’s illness or Bob, who is some foreign missionary in a distant land. We start accumulating lists and requests. These are all great. But it can be tiring. Sometimes our hearts may not be where they should be but we can’t let that keep us from coming to God time and time again.
When you pray, talk. Ask God what He thinks about your daily decisions. Thank Him for your food. Seek His opinions. Etc.
The more that happens, soon enough God will talk back. You will start seeking God’s heart deeply. God will show you what He likes and what He dislikes.
Stop making prayer boring and irrelevant. Learn that it can be exciting, personal and very relevant.
It’s a conversation with our Creator. So just start talking.
