When I’m Not Talking to God…

Paul says we should pray without ceasing.  But sometimes I find myself not ceasing from life that I forget about God.  Call it practical atheism if you will.

Now this doesn’t happen as much as it used to.  But it still happens.

I used to think of prayer as a DISCIPLINE that HAD to be worked at.

But really it’s just like the conversational aspect of any relationship.  Yes, sometimes I have to work on listening to my wife and communicating.  But I don’t WORK on it like it’s a discipline.  I don’t need to.  I love her and I know she loves me.  So why does my prayer life stall occasionally?

Specifically prayer is the conversational part of the most important love relationship in our lives, our love relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

What can your prayer life tell you about your love relationship with God?

  1. My prayer life tells me that I’m continuously evolving in my relationship with my Father. That my prayer life gets stronger, and on occasion weaker thanks to my flaws, but that His love for me never ceases. He, with all His love and glory, is always there patiently waiting for me to improve my communication.
