The moment you address your Lord, He immediately turns His focused attention to you. His heart is glad that His precious child wants to spend time with Him. He is excited to hear your heart, your concerns, your fears, your needs, your praises and your love for Him. The eternal, all-powerful Creator of all that exists chooses, even delights, to hear from you.
As He leans in toward you, in loving excitement and expectancy, will He be blessed or disappointed? Will He have to compete for your attention and your focus? Will He hear memorized, thoughtless, superficial mutterings when He hopes to hear your true heart’s concerns? Does He hear the deep love, praise and surrender He longs to hear? Does He ache to share unsearchable treasures, priceless gifts, and a fruitful life with you? Look directly into the loving, longing eyes of your Savior. Fall on your knees in surrender and adoration. Don’t miss the appointment for deep communion with your Lord and King. He wants to be with you, to hold you up, to embolden you and to love you every step of the way. He doesn’t want your prayers to start and stop, to be brief occasional periods of time; He wants to be in constant and deep communion with you.
Come to prayer with confidence and expectancy that you will hear from your Creator. He is waiting to hear from you right now. Don’t miss the appointment! How can we pass up a personal conversation with our Creator! Shed the superficial and dive deep into your Savior’s heart. Break through the shallow, one-way conversation and know what is the depth of your Lord’s love for you!
Hebrews 4:16 – “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
Matthew 6:6 – “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”
