I am a big fan of praying for everything BIG and small. If you don't talk to God and share your needs then who will? I know that God knows all that we need or ever will want. Just like we know what our children need and usually know what they want. I still want my kids to talk to me and share with me what they want and need. I as a parent want that conversation. Granted I don't want the non stop conversation I am getting from Honey at 11pm at night, but I do want the with my kids. I want to hear what they want. I want to hear what they think they need. Well just like I want to have that conversation with my kids, our God, our heavenly Father wants that conversation too. Praying for the BIG and small in our life. Praying is not just you talking and not listening. But Praying is talking AND stopping and listening to what God has to share with you. What HE wants for us. What HE thinks we NEED.
Example of what I mean...
The other day I made a loaf of bread. This is a nice treat in our house. I needed this bread to make sandwiches with for my husbands lunch. Normally I am unable to cut the bread thin enough for this purpose. One reason we have not made bread for lunches on a regular basis. Once the bread was done cooking and was cool. I prayed a small prayer. Lord, Please give me the skill to cut this bread thin enough to make a sandwich with.
Here was God's answer to my small prayer.
Perfectly cut for sandwiches! Thank you, Lord for answering my small prayer.
