The Essence of Prayer
Morning Thought: Prayer is not primarily about asking God for things, it’s about listening to him. Cultivate a quiet spirit that drinks in God’s Word. Then, respond back with your words to him. “As you enter the house of God, keep your ears open and your mouth shut…Don’t make rash promises, and don’t be hasty in bringing matters before God. After all, God is in heaven, and you are here on earth. So let your words be few” (Ecclesiastes 5:1-2, NLT).
