Day 16 – Tuesday, February 18

Read Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2

 

Remember … God, You are accessible. You make Yourself available to Your people. You are steadfast and immovable!

Respond … I regret that I don’t access You as I should. I often take Your presence for granted and choose to pursue other things. Please forgive me for this blatant disregard for communion with You.

Reflect … Thank You for the gift of prayer. Thank You for desiring to commune with me daily and for making a way for Your church to fellowship with You through Your Son, Jesus.

Renew … Help Your people – the church – desire prayer. Help us long for communication with You. Give us an awareness of our need for You, and help us make time for daily prayer. When we fall to our knees in prayer, help us to see how great a God You are. Help us go to You, not only for the answers to our prayers but for the joy of just being with You. In Jesus’ name, amen. 

We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul,

closer than our most secret thoughts.  – A. W Tozer
