As We Walk Together

Pressing on towards the finish line

A Prayer for Days When You Don’t Feel Like Praying September 8, 2011

Filed under: life,parenting — aswewalktogether @ 8:01 am

The title says it all. Scotty Smith gives word to what I feel many mornings.

Dear Father, this is one of those days when I could create a long prayer list and methodically go through it, but I’m not sure I would really be praying. I could go through the motions, but to be quite honest, it would be more ritual than reality—more about me, than the people and situations I’d bring before you. I’m feeling distracted this morning, scattered and not very focused at all.

It’s one of those days I’m glad the gospel is much more about your grasp of me than my grip on you. It’s one of those days I’m grateful your delight in me is not contingent upon my delight in you.  It’s one of those days I’m very thankful for the prayer ministry of the Holy Spirit.
