Last Night’s Prayer

November 6, 2008 at 2:20 pm 1 comment

Last night was tough for me… I don’t know what it was about it, but I found myself feeling lonelier than I have felt in quite some time. I suppose I was just coming off of a high from the previous two days which held a David Crowder Band concert, babysitting, baking, voting, bible study and chill time with Brandon and his brother and sister. Compared to those activities, yesterday felt so empty. I was so lost at the end of the night, and even my daily reading didn’t fill the emptiness I was feeling. My mind was allowed to wander, and though I know that God needs to be enough, my heart longed for something else. The prayer that came from my lips last night was of complete selfishness. And while God does give good gifts to his children, I regret praying it. The moments I spent praying it and the minutes that followed meditating on what I prayed could have been used much more effectively for God’s glory. If I ask for something out of wrong motives, it’s a wasted prayer… especially when there is so much that I ought to pray for that gets neglected.

    Hello, long lost friend. I don’t know what you prayed for, but I think I have an idea. I want you to know this…you are an AWESOME Christian young lady. God has an awesome Christian young man picked out for you. My suggestion, when you’re lonely, pray for that young man. He’ll need your prayers to grow into the Father and Husband he needs to be.

    I hope things are well and that I’m not too far off track here.
