today's reading James 4:2
"You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask." James 4:2
Do you ever wonder why things haven't turned out like you had thought or hoped? Well one possible reason is that you haven't asked God. I know I'm guilty of that. I get busy and involved in "doing" and instead of stopping and taking time to ask God for help or guidance, I just push forward. There are even times when I find myself thinking, Well, God knows what I'm thinking. I know it's stupid on my part, but yet, it happens. Maybe you've done the same thing?
So how do we combat falling into a casual attitude about prayer? Any thoughts on things we can do to help us make sure we're bringing all of our requests before God? Tami W.
