“..if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I allow my prayer times to become hurried and rushed as I try to pray on the run. As a result, I still feel rushed and anxious after the ‘amen’ because my focus was not on God or the prayer. It was on the errand at hand and on how I was going to accomplish that errand.
I know that God wants me to pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5) throughout my days; however, He also wants me to come before Him in reverent, bold prayer. God wants me to humble myself before Him, confess my sins, and reveal my deepest needs and desires. God wants my worship through prayer. God wants to renew my spirit, refresh my soul and restore my faith.
My God, the Lord Almighty, is worthy of my reverence and my time. I must stop the rushed, mindless jabbering, and go before God in bold worship and prayer each day.
