All these things… ALL these things… I have prayed for and rejoice and thank God for his wondrous blessings.
But in these days, packed with wonder, I have put something even more precious to the sideline.
It sounds simple and perhaps unnecessary, but it is essential to my walk of faith--Quiet time with God.
That’s when I pray, deep and simply, and wait to hear is voice.
That’s when I let life pause and feel the deep strains of God’s spirit tug me to His will.
That’s when I am renewed.
In the Bible, Jesus went away, alone to the garden and prayed. For hours he prayed. And it wasn’t the only time. Jesus went and searched for His quiet time alone with His Heavenly Father on many occasions.
It is vital.
It is important.
It is what keep the path illuminated, keeps us hearing His voice beating strong in the deep strains of our hearts.
That is where our strength comes from.

Therefore let all the faithful pray to you while you may be found; surely the rising of the mighty waters will not reach them.
