It’s funny to watch two children staring at the last slice of pizza or the last piece of birthday cake, trying to decide who will get it. Even as adults, we find ourselves racing other people to the closest parking space, or arranging details to be sure we get with the biggest portion of a business deal. When we let our desires lead us instead of asking God for direction, we will never end up where He wants us to be. So, what is driving your choices in life right now?
Lord, Teach Us To Pray
The disciples had grown up hearing scripted prayers that were memorized and recited repeatedly, but when they heard Jesus pray, their hearts were stirred and they knew He was connecting to God in a way they never had. So they said, “Lord, teach us to pray.” In the response Jesus gave them, we can gain a right understanding of how to approach God, and we can truly learn how to pray.
