Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving
How often have you heard the phrase “friends are the family you choose” while in conversations with friends about family relationships, and how difficult they are? I personally have family who are strangers to me, by their choice. In contrast I have good friends who I have known all my life, we are truly family. The key element here is communication; absent from my blood family but active in my friends. Relationships thrive on communication, it is the oxygen that all relationships need. Our relationship to God, our Heavenly Father, is no different.
Our Father God yearns for our company, He is always close to us. We need to communicate with Him frequently throughout our day, not just the short prayers after breakfast and before bedtime. In your free moments He is only a sigh or a whisper away, in trouble and in thanksgiving. There is nothing more uplifting than when a friend visits for no reason other than to be in our company, our Father God feels the same way when we send a prayer of love His way.
PRAYER: Dear Father I love You, I yearn for Your company throughout my day. Give me a glimpse of Your presence in my moments today, guide me in Your Ways. May my service and prayers be pleasing to You. Amen.
