How often do you pray? Do you talk to God like you know He is listening, like He is right there? Do you pray without ceasing (1 Thes 5:17)?
Some of the next parts are taken from a Wednesday night devotion I wrote last year, about this time, for the ladies in my church It was entitled the same, "Do you pray like the leaves depend on it?"
I was driving on Thursday and both girls were asleep, which was a miracle, and I was looking at the beautiful leaves changing colors. I thought about how we don’t have to pray that the Lord will cause the leaves to change. Every Autumn season it is just part of His plan. It just happens. The beauty that comes in the fall is a blessing from Him, and we don't even ask for it. I began thinking, is there anything in my life that I slack on praying about because I just assume He’ll take care of it? He takes care of the leaves' colors and He will take care of what needs to be taken care of? It is already planned out, and I don’t need to bother Him about it.
What could your prayer days be?
My Example is ...
Sunday - Missionaries
Monday - Extended Family
Tuesday - Church (workers, growth, and programs)
Wednesday - specific guidance in certain areas of our life (children's school, moving, etc.)
Thursday - Friends
Friday - Activities involved in for the coming week
Saturday - Government and Country
God does not take the weekends off, or any day off for that matter. He is always watching over us and hearing us and guiding us. He is there for us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and 366 on leap years. He never takes a break, and we should not feel like it is acceptable to ever take a break from our God.
