Slow Down and Pray More

January 24, 2017

“But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”
–Matthew 6:6

Meditation – Step 3: Give God Some of Your Time

Do you have a resolution to pray more this year? If so, make a daily appointment with God and treat that appointment with God in the same way you would approach a business appointment.

  1. Pick a place where you can give your undivided attention.
  2. Pick a specific time

You would never set a meeting with your boss without a specific time and place.

So, slow down and pray more. Trust that if you keep your appointment, God will always keep His!

Remember us, O God; from age to age be our comforter.
You have given us the wonder of time, blessings in days and nights, seasons and years.
Bless your children at the turning of the year and fill the months ahead with the bright hope that is ours in the coming of Christ. You are our God, living and reigning, forever and ever. Amen.
