To stay connected to my Lord, I am currently reading Kingdom Woman by Tony Evans & Chrystal Evans Hurst. Chapter 8, "The prayer of a kingdom womans' faith". In this chapter, it talks about how we should pray. Every single night, I pray with my children. We thank God for all of our blessings, then we ask God to bless us and forgive us. We pray for others, and we pray for each other. Some nights, I am in a rush when we are praying.
Reading chapter 8 tonight, it quoted scripture Matthew 6:6 "When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." In that scripture, it says 'go into your room, close the door'. I think this is so crucial, in this highly stimulated world that we live, we are constantly in a rush. I know I'll be the first to admit. When praying with my children, I am in a rush, so I can go sit down and relax. I feel horrible, because I should be enjoying these moments. Cherishing them. Soaking them in.
Tonight I am going to cherish these moments, soaking them in, enjoying every second. Sometimes we get in such a hurry, let's slow it down and breathe in every moment. God has blessed us. He has blessed me. He has blessed you. Let us be thankful <3
