A Conversation with God


This week I have been reminded that Prayer should be a conversation with God.  He wants to hear about everything in our lives.  He already knows, but He loves for us to discuss it with Him.  I need to remember to talk to Him and then Listen.  How about you, have you just talked to the Lord lately.

  3. Marty,
    You, dear friend, and I are both being called to heed a tentative ear this week. As I prepare for a vacation break...I have nearly the same themed post for Monday! Thank you for your post. It is an affirmation to what I feel through my devotions this week! Have a wonderfully blessed week, dear friend!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  5. Hello from Kansas. Precious is my time when praying and visiting with God. The peace that fills the room to where I can sense His presence is healing and comforting. No amount of money can buy this. Tis so sorely needed in each of our lives.
    God bless,

  10. I definitely need to pay closer attention to listening and being more thankfully responsive as well. I talk with God all the time. It's been quite a bit lately as so many I know are struggling with illnesses and other challenges of life. Thanks for the sweet reminder!

  11. Nice reminder. I say prayers for others, but never myself, and never just talk. This is how I know depression is starting to creep in. Your reminder must have come from above. Thank you.

  12. Sometimes more than others. BTW, have you heard about the 40 days of prayer initiative? September 28th through election day people all over the nation will be praying (and some fasting) for the good of our country. Non-partisan prayer for a nation-wide awakening. Sounds good to me. (40daysofprayer.net).

  17. Marty not only should we have a conversation with him, we should also have a relationship with him as well. He loves to hear from his son's and daughter's it brings him great pleasure that when we have a problems that we go to him first before we called on a friend to help. And yes we are ought to be still and listen. We all serve an awesome God and he is so merciful to us! Just remember this for letter word "ASAP" Always Stop and Pray!
    Blessing to all Maggie

  21. Good Sunday Evening, Marty. My quiet time to "listen" to the Lord is early in the a.m. and I talk with him all through the day. Have a nice week, Mildred

  22. Hi Marty! We have been working with Lia and her bedtime prayers each night. All three of us pray and tell the Lord about our day and the things we are grateful for and the things that we need help with each night together. I absolutely love to hear the sincere thoughts that come out of her mind. It is our favorite time of every day.

  23. Thank you for sharing this. It's a good reminder to not only talk to God moment by moment, but also LISTEN! Sometimes it's easy for me to jump ahead of the Lord and not first listen to Him.
    Have a blessed Monday!

    Hugs,
    Stephanie

  24. Hi Marty, I have talked to God a lot this past year because our son has been quite ill. Many times I felt like I just couldn't bear the stress any longer but after I talked to God and then listened I always felt a renewal of strength. Thank you for your reminder...have a wonderful day.

  26. Marty, prayer has become such a huge part of my life lately. It seems like we forget to talk with God when everything is going good. But when a storm passes by, we remember that it is God who is the author of life. I do believe that prayer changes things. I know I need to listen in the quietness of my heart.

  27. Thank you, Marty. Your blog is a ministry and an effective one.

    We all need to pray for our country and the elections to come regardless of the party of your choice.
