Prayer that Listens: God’s list
Making lists can be a great way to get things done. Grocery lists help us shop – school lists help keep track of when assignments are due – Christmas lists ensure we’ll have at least one favourite toy under the tree (hey, a kid can hope).
We often approach God in a similar way. We have our various wish lists that we present to God like that cute kid on Santa’s lap at Portage Place.
Could it be that God has a list too? Do you ever wonder what would be on it?
Today, let’s listen to the Holy Spirit and humbly ask God to show us what’s on his list. Tell him that, today, you want to listen to him and get to know his longings and desires.
“Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.” Mother Teresa
