Prayerlessness sneaks in so subtly. Busyness, obligations, ministry requirements and opportunities, interruptions, study time - weeks get full very quickly and prayer gets marginalized. No big deal, right? I'll pray more tomorrow and anyway God understands. I don't deny that He does understand but do I understand what my prayerlessness is really saying? It says I can get by without spending time with the Father. It really is the first sign of prideful independence.
And so I lay aside some of those pressing things. I decide not to do that fun activity, Bejeweled Blitz. I lay them aside so I can spend some time with the Father reminding myself that I REALLY, REALLY do need Him.
