There are so many things that I am thankful for: Great friends, extended family (mine and my hubbys) and my husband and kids. Life is so much easier when you have these things. Danny Sullivan taught the class last night and he was discussing prayer. I really enjoyed listening to him and it really got me thinking about it. I prayed the same way for my entire life up till about 6 years ago. Laura Bull and I were praying together and I realized at that moment exactly what the purpose of prayer was. Now some of you are going to say "Duh- you're just now figuring that out", but it was an eye opener for me. I realized that you don't have to have structure, you can say what ever you want. You can praise God for everything and anything that is in your heart and mind. It is great to praise Him. You can also "ask" for things, but the main reason of prayer is to praise Him- to know Him- to communicate with Him and to form a relationship with Him. Now I will be honest- I don't pray as often as I think I should. The business of the day gets to me and I loose track of time. There are lots of things I don't get to in my day, but that is one thing I HAVE to get to. I have to make the time. I have to set time aside to do this. So I am learning and growing every day. Slowly but surely I will get there.
Anyway, just pray for our family as we search out God's will for us. And that we will listen to it when we hear it.
