Constant Prayer

Be joyful always;
pray continually;
give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is God’s will for you.
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Father, I haven’t set my mind on You enough lately, and
I’ve missed You.
Without You, I’m left with me, and
that’s not nearly good enough.

Father, I love You.
Father, I worship You.
Father, I need You.

I long to live in the privilege of constant prayer.
You offer it.
You keep calling me to it.
Lord, help me make each moment Yours.

This moment I turn my thoughts to You.
They are Yours.
Take them where You want them, Lord:
to praise;
to intercession;
to simple quietness in You.
