Lately I've been thinking about this quote and embracing the worthy pursuit. . . .
Never resist even the least urge to pray
So I come humbly, Lord, open the eyes of my heart, make me keen to your promptings!
I'm praying more. . . .impromptu prayers, over the phone, over coffee, over and amid every situation and conversation. I'm leaning hard into God that way, trusting that prayer will grow more a part of my inner self, if you know what I mean?
I shared the challenge with the women in my Bible study and received this text from a friend:
I heard your voice in my head last night saying, "Don't ignore the Holy Spirit's prompting to pray."After some internal debate I obeyed and prayed audibly over my husband for his rest and work stresses. Thanks for spurring me on to obedience.
And thanks, friend, for spurring me on-- so like iron sharpens iron, so one woman sharpens another.
