A Prayer about seeking God.
I talk to my closest friends almost every day. We go out and do things together, we reminisce about fond memories, or we just enjoy being in the same room. I wouldn’t expect to stay close to a friend if I never spent time with him or her. So why do I expect to feel close to you when I don’t take time for you? Forgive me. Teach me that my relationship with you takes effort. Prompt me to talk to you every day. I want to be open and honest with you, just as I would be with a close friend. I’d like to tell you about my concerns, think about the future, and remember ways you’ve helped me in the past. Remind me to listen to you as well, and to think about what you are doing in my life and around the world. help me commit to reading your Word daily so that I’ll be better able to hear your voice and follow your guidance. I want to always remember that you are with me all day, every day. thank you that you are always available and that I can talk to you about anything, anytime! I’m grateful that when I seek you, I will find you.
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me” And my heart responds, “LORD, I am coming.” Psalm 27:8
