Week 8 – Never too Busy for Prayer

Today was a very busy day for me.  It was the National Day of Prayer and I was blessed to attend 3 different times of prayer with my friends and church members.  I met with some coworkers early in the morning at the start of the day and met with some others during lunch.  After work I attended a prayer service at our church.  I attended three different sessions because all of us could not get together at the same time.  We all have different schedules, we live in different areas and we simply were not all able to meet at the same time.  There was just not an acceptable time for all of us to get together.  I am glad it is not that way with the Lord.  We do not have to work around His schedule or wait for a certain time to meet with Him to pray.  The bible says in Psalm 34:17

The righteous cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles.       Psalm 34:17

Anytime we need help is an acceptable time to cry unto the Lord.  Anytime we need comfort is an acceptable time to call upon His Name.  Anytime we simply want to talk with our Lord and Savior is an acceptable time to pray.  There is no need for us to worry about how busy or rushed the Lord’s schedule may be; He will make time for us.  He is never too busy to listen to His Children.  He is always willing to hear our prayers.  He is always willing to hear our cries and deliver us out of our troubles.

I pray that during the next weeks and months and upcoming year, that I will do a better job of making time for Him.

I pray that you will have a blessed week.  I pray that you will have no trials, no troubles and no tribulations.  But if you do, I pray that you will not wait but that you will immediately go to the Lord and speak to Him.  For it is in a time of prayer and in His presence that I know that you will find peace and comfort.
