I plod down the stairs trying not to step on the cat (Hank) who is racing me to the kitchen.
Hank must wait, however. I must make the coffee before he gets fed.
Coffee made. Cat with food in his bowl.
I get on my knees as the coffee percolates.
“Dear God, thank you for this day. I love you and praise you Jesus. . . ”
What do I need to get done today? I need to go to WalMart, the post office. . .
“Oh Lord, I’m so sorry, please focus my mind on you so I can pray . . .”
. . . Is the coffee ready?
This is what my my prayer time looks like some mornings.
Some days it’s simply hard to focus. And that’s when I really need help with my prayers. When it’s hard to settle my mind, I know I need to pour my coffee, take a sip, grab my Bible and use scriptures to pray.
Praying Scripture focuses our prayers, but it also unites our hearts with the men after God’s heart.
Their prayers etched into eternity connect our hearts and minds with petitions that go beyond our earthly requests.
I’m so excited about the “Bites” this week. Turn them into prayers.
Leave a comment to encourage others: Do you have a particular scripture you love to pray?
