Prayer

Email DJ

Kelley / 8 Years Ago

1. Prayer is communication with/to God. When I pray, I tell Him how thankful I am for various things. (I can never be too thankful, especially because I cannot repay Him.) I make requests not really for physical things, but for help, wisdom, patience, self-control. etc I can pray anywhere. If I am standing at a fax machine at work, I can pray. If I am in my car, I can pray. I am encouraged that as of late, I am praying more. It might not be a huge change, but I can tell that it is more. I feel that I am recognizing that He is with me all of the time. He truly is a prayer away.
2. What does it mean to devote yourself to prayer?
1. Devotion to prayer can mean a few things. It can mean that you discipline yourself on a daily basis to set aside time specifically for prayer to God. (This is an area I am working on.) It can also be like I shared in the first question. I can devote myself to constantly be in communion with God. I go through my day noticing the tiniest of things and telling Him thank you. Devotion to me means that there is almost nothing that would keep you from doing a certain activity. So, it is great that we are not held down to a building or a time. We can pray whenever, wherever. He is just waiting to hear us.
3. What would that devotion look like in the real world? 1. It means more than saying, “ I’ll pray for you.” It is about showing the love for God and using prayer as a tool .

    Job Searching
    I talk about my current job situation a lot. It has not been a great experience. I have hope that there is something else out there that will be a better fit for me. It is scary to look at jobs nation-wide. I do not want to move for a job unless I know it is a match. I will continue at my current job and make the best of the situation as I continue to search.

    DJ's return is set
    We are so excited to share that DJ's ticket to return to the states is set. It now allows us to start really preparing for our move to Virginia. Kelley is trying to find a job. We will look for a house to rent. The hope is that we prepare as much as possible to make the transition the least stressful as possible. We are both super looking forward to a change. Things can be always be worse, but we're both ready to get out of our current living situation.
