PSALM 66:20 (CEB)
Bless God! He didn’t reject my prayer;
he didn’t withhold his faithful love from me.
COLOSSIANS 4:2 (ABP)
Keep on praying -- with focus and gratitude.
When it comes to prayer, don't be a slacker.
Thank you, God, for your eagerness to talk with us. You have the time and energy for me. I, on the other hand, can become quite lazy and unfocused. I use that as an excuse to skip praying. Help me to maintain contact with you -- even if my prayers are disjointed and shallow. Even if my prayers are sloppy I know that your love is unrelenting and attentive. Amen.
