Psalm 116:1-2 (NLT), “I lvoe the Lord because He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!”
The Lord wants to hear my needs and requests! He wants to be a part of my life, and I need Him to be in my life. I need His life flowing down to me, flowing in me, and flooding my mind, body, and spirit. I need this because I need healing every day.
My mind, body, and spirit are attacked every day. Life crowds in and tries to steal my intimacy with God. Busyness leaves us rushing through the day, failing to see those around us, failing to see the needs around us. When we don’t have new strength from the Lord every morning, we don’t want to look and see the needs of others. We can’t! The burden is too great; so we just walk on by.
There is only one way off this merry-go-round, and this is prayer.
