Listening…

Standard

A really great friend of mine suggested that I learn how to be a better listener.  I need to talk less and listen more.  I think this comes with age.  After all…she IS older than me! LOL  Just kidding!  Seriously though I heard her loud and clear.  When I stop talking and  listen I will hear what God hears.  The aches, pains, stresses, worries, joys, & successes. I pray that I will learn to respond in love, with faith, and leave hope behind. 

 

Lord, give ear to my prayer and help me be a better listener and responder.  Help me to be a catalyst of love for all people, not just people I know, but especially those who are unlovable, grumpy, mean spirited and just plain miserable.  Help me to place my ear to the door of their heart and listen long and hard for the song that’s inside.  A song of redeeming love and extravagant grace.  Help me to pull it out and pour it over their lives as you have mine and many others.   May I decrease as you increase.

I pray these things asking, believing, thanking and giving you the glory for all the things you have done, are doing and will do.  I lay myself down so that I may be picked up by You, dusted, cleaned and refreshed so that I may walk side by side with you for the rest of my days.  All I want is you lord. . .

In Jesus Name I Pray,

Amen
