Telephone answering machines can be helpful, but it’s often frustrating to call someone and hear a recorded voice say, “I’m sorry I can’t take your call just now, but please leave your name and phone number and I’ll get back to you.” Disappointed, we speak into the machine, hoping the other person won’t be forgetful or too busy to call back.
In our high-tech world, it’s encouraging to know that when we call out to God we get straight through to Him.
What are the things that keep you from praying? Begin by talking to God about whatever is hindering your prayer-life. Such praying will cultivate the two-way closeness that your heavenly Father is longing to enjoy with you.
Why keep God waiting any longer? – Joanie Yoder
We can know that God is watching,
Always present, everywhere,
And with hope and joy and patience
He is waiting for our prayer. – Roworth
If you’re too busy to pray, you’re too busy.
