I'll have to admit that sometimes I wonder what God is up to in my life. As I see people struggle around me to make ends meet and others suffer from physical pain, I ask myself if God is seeing what I am seeing? Does He care as much as I do? Is He going to do anything to fix the mess that I am seeing? I know that the typical preacher answer is "God is on His throne! He is in full control!" There is a level of comfort in knowing that He is in control, but it would be nice if He had an office next door that I could stop by and visit with Him about all the struggles that I see. I'd even be willing to make an appointment or wait in line to get His advice on how to help. Yet, how little time I actually spend doing what is most needed in any given situation: that is, prayer. Isn't this truly how we get ahold of God? Isn't this how we access the throne room of grace? Isn't He always ready to answer and delights to hear from us?! Yet, how little time i actually spend on my knees, begging God to work on behalf of those that need Him most. I beg God to let me see a revival of personal prayer in my life that would overflow into the lives of those around me. A fire that would burn so deep inside of me that I could actually see and know my God on a deeper, more personal level. Oh, dear Lord! Teach me to pray!
