This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. - 1 John 5:14 (NIV)

Last year our church welcomed a new pastor. I was immediately struck by her approach to the morning prayer. She started by saying, “Good morning, Lord.” Then she continued her conversation with God.

Her way of praying made me think about prayer in general and how we as Christians communicate...

Today's Prayer
Good morning, Lord. I have much to share with you. Thank you for this time together. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
