Wondrous Privilege of Prayer
I had on my mind this morning the wondrous privilege that we have to pray.  I know we try to pray about many things in our lives like our family, our church, about the sick, the lost and I'm sure so many other things on our hearts.  But I'm thinking about just the wondrous privilege it is to talk to the Lord.  I'm afraid our prayers (mine included) so often consist only of nothing more than a spiritual shopping list of what we want delivered to our lives.  But think about how privileged we are to talk to the Lord, the God of old, the Creator of the universe, the God Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of David, the Lord of Glory, the King of kings and Lord of lords.  What an awesome privilege it is to be able to have an audience with Him and to know that He is interested in those things that concern me and my life.  Yes, I can tell Him all about my family, our church, the sick, the lost and all the other things that weigh heavy on my heart and He cares about all of them.  Yet, it pleases Him so that we come into His presence with worship and adoration in our hearts before we ask anything of Him.  Before we tell Him all about our needs, lets be careful to tell HIm how much we love HIm and give Him the honor He truly deserves.  What a wondrous privilege we have to talk to Him.
