Praying expectantly changes us and not things. We’re amiss to pray, getting others to join in when we want it “OUR” way. Complain to change, rearrange things differently is difficult when we’re under the circumstances. What we are doing there gets us no higher than the hairs on “OUR” head.
Father we get desperate when things around us change us. The ways of what in the world is going on influence us and tells us where we’re headed. Your ways are much higher than “OUR” ways; Your thoughts are not “OUR” thoughts. Prayers change “OUR” relationship with You, “OUR” Father in worship that adores who You are in us.
We are not alone in “OUR” thoughts or Your ways. The truth comes out when we think to do as You say. Your Word is sweet when we have a stomach to cherish them. “OUR” word falls flat. To Pray as You taught makes more sense than what anyone else is praying.
You do forgive and cleanse us for all the un-right-in-us and You lead us in the paths of “BE”in right-in-us. We owe others the same love You’ve shown to us. Teach us to listen instead of trying to “do it” “OUR”selves. Deliver us from the evil one.
You’ve got “OUR” attention. We’ll praise You endlessly!
