I know, I need to work on my Prayer life.

I like this picture of our Universe. When I think of God I think of this picture as if it was God's eye and He is watching me. I know its probably not God's eye, but He IS watching me - and listening for my prayers.

It is only 8:30AM and already we have received several urgent prayer requests. I have prayed for them as they have come to my attention and will be praying throughout the day.

Max Lucado states in his book 'Out Live Your Life' that we need to pray in earnest. More often than not my prayers are whispered as they cross my mind.

Mama is a genuine prayer warrior. Prayer is an important part of her life - I know because I see her in prayer often throughout the day. I believe that prayer is important as well - but I just need to live that more than just saying that!! I WILL Be praying for you !!

My understanding of prayer matches another of Max Lucado's quotes:

"Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference."

Ed, very well said. It is a great book. Max Lucado is a good writer, easy to read. Good every day living stuff.

Hi Papa, There is such power in our prayer. That's why I love my Moms In Touch Prayer Group. It's 1 and 1/2 hours of concentrated prayer for our children and their schools.

Mama is the best, you're a lucky man!

Yes, in earnest. I agree totally. I don't think you praying as things cross your mind is bad either because I believe in constant and continual prayer, which brings a closer relationship wtih God.
