The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord will answer my prayer. 
~Psalm 6:9

The scripture above was written by David who was praying for God to help him overcome his enemies and to have compassion on him.  David could certainly pray.  He was the prototype of a "prayer warrior," literally!  But David's words in this psalm and many others could easily be said today.

It makes me take a look at my prayer life, and to get another cup of coffee, but that really has nothing to do with this post.  Does my prayer life need some work?  Am I happy with my prayer life?  The simple answer is no.  I definitely need some help in this area!  It's just like I have friends to call but don't do it.  Is there a reason that my prayer life is lacking?  I could say that it is because I don't know what to say, or my mind wanders or my 4 year old needs something, but those are just excuses and lame ones at that.  The Lord is waiting for me to pick up the proverbial phone and get down on my knees and really have a good long talk with Him.

Dearest Father in Heaven, thank you for being there for me.  Please help me to take some time every day to really pray to you, to praise you and to listen to you.  I ask this, fully committed to you, in Jesus' name, Amen!!!!!
