Praise be to God,
who has not rejected my prayer
or witheld his love from me!

Psalm 66:20

We don't deserve the communication we have with God, so why do we take it for granted. Our prayers are not spoken and then forgotten. They are heard and acted upon. Why then, do we cease to pray? Why then do we run to other earthly havens in times of trouble, joy, sorrow? Why do we consider the ear of man far greater than the ear of God?

God, teach me how to pray without ceasing, to lift my voice to the heavens, and to trust that every word will be heard. May I keep this attitude of humble adoration as I pray to you. My words do not go unheard. Thank you.
