Our Heart's Desire

by Berni Dymet

>Isaiah 26: 8-9  In the path of your judgements, O Lord, we wait for you; your name and your renown are the soul's desire. My soul yearns for you in the night,my spirit within me earnestly seeks you.

Let me ask you this. Have you ever sought after God with all your heart? Are you hungry, are you thirsty for Him? Do you want Him more than anything else on this earth?

Because it's only that sort of desire that leads us into a rich and powerful prayer life. I mean, if a husband and a wife don't desire one another - can there be any real, deep satisfaction in the relationship?

No. A wondrous, intimate relationship is…is an intimate embrace. And that only happens when each desires the other. 

It's the same in our relationship with God. 

Prayer's not some casual thing. It's not the occasional panic button that we hit when something's going wrong.  It's not a now-and-then brush past God. It's not some daily duty, a failure at which leaves us wracked with guilt.

No! 

Prayer is…it's an ongoing, intimate embrace born out of a passionate desire for God Himself. Prayer is a choice that we make in our hearts.
