Prayer: Sweet Communion with our Lord

Rest for the weary

Knee mail

Aren't you glad that when we pray, we don't get this:

"Thank you for calling Heaven. You have reached Celestial Voice Mail. In order for us to serve you better, please choose one of the following:

For repentence of sins, press 1
For praise and adoration, press 2
For confession, press 3
For intercession, press 4
For supplication, press 5

Please be patient. A customer service representative will be with you shortly."

Romans 12:12 "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."

Ephesians 6:18 "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people."

Colossians 4:2 "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful."

I Thessalonians 5:17 "pray continually"

I recently picked up the book "A Time to Pray." One of the quotes from the book says, "The sincerity of your heart touches His heart, which in return moves His hand." The one requirement is being faithful to pray.

Love your emphasis on prayer.

I had to giggle a little as I read the choices we get on the phone. I like this post a lot! Thank you so much.

What a clever post. I hate those automated answers on the phone. I'm glad we don't have to deal with that when we pray.
