Take Some Time To Read This...

I read this passage in the book Beloved Disciple this morning and it almost brought tears to my eyes. I want to share it with you...

Do we not find our minds wandering and ourselves even a tad bored in prayer at times because - if the truth were known - we wonder if our words are bouncing off the ceiling? How differently would we pray if Christ chose to manifest his presence? Would we pray differently if He sat in a chair right across from each of us, leaning forward to concentrate on what we're saying?
Beloved, if only we would realize that though He's invisible to our sight, that's in essence what He does! He intercedes for us at the right hand of the Father. When we pray, He is so close to us, He may as well be leaning over the edge of heaven and bending down to hear. His presence through His Holy Spirit literally surrounds us as we pray. His eyes are fixed on our face. On every word we're saying. On every expression we're making. Can you imagine how the angels marvel over our boredom at times when we pray, as their faces behold our Father in heaven who is listening intently to every word?


I felt like this was written for me. So often I pray the same old "Thank you for this day...blah, blah, blah" yet He still listens intently to my every word. What an amazing God we have! How patient He is with me and my "boredom".
