Keeping up with my Small group prayer thing...

Ok so before I go watch Desperate House wife's and Greys Anatomy...here is a word from the Lord...or... to the Lord anyways

O'God please set my heart at rest in your presence when my heart wants to condem me. For you God, are greater then my heart, and you know everything. (Prayer derived from1 John 3:19-20)

I like that one because it combines 2 of my favorite truths: There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus and we can't even trust our own hearts!

"every time you listen with great attentiveness to the voice that calls you the beloved, you will discover within yourself a desire to hear that voice longer and more deeply. It is like discovering a well in the desert. Once you have touched wet ground, you want to dig deeper." Nowen

I love both of these quotes! That first one might be my prayer for tomorrow - it's awesome! The Nowen one reminds me of how wonderful it is to pray to hear the Spirit because to me that always seems like water bubbling up and when I experience it I think I could just sit in prayer for hours, and that's not normal for me ;)
