Teach Us to Pray

Let us each come to Jesus today – and as our Intercessor lay down all those thoughts, troubles, thanksgivings and hopes to God. Have a blessed Sunday. Thanks to Days N Thoughts for this wonderful devotional.

This is an edited repost from January 2013 …..

Dear Jesus, how desperately I need to learn to pray. And yet, when I am honest, I know that I often do not even want to pray.
I am distracted!
I am stubborn!
I am self-centered!
In your mercy, Jesus, bring my “want-er” more in line with my “need-er” so that I can come to want what I need.
In your name & for your sake, I pray.  —Amen.

(taken from Richard J. Foster, “Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home”, page 15)

“One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord teach us to pray…”. (Luke 11:1)

Today I am joining … Still Saturday and Sunday Stillness and Spiritual Sundays and Scripture & a Snapshot .
