Do I pray enough?

Do I pray enough?  Wow, what a terrible question.  I came to this question when thinking of a ministry I’m involved with possibly coming to an end soon.  Did I pray for this ministry enough?  Did I rely on God’s hand to work in it or did I rely on my own strength and the talents of others?   Were the strategies good and if not was it because I wasn’t listening to God or asking for his guidance?  Did I give God the glory and rejoice, or was I disappointed more didn’t happen on my schedule or timeline?  Was I giving thanks even when the circumstances looked bleak and the hours were more than I really wanted to put in?  Do I pray enough?  Do I pray without ceasing?  No, I don’t.  In learning this hard lesson I rejoice in you Lord that you give me wisdom and that your word is faithful to correct me.  I also apologize for not doing the hard spiritual work of prayer ahead of time.  Lord help me to pray for this ministry and other ministry’s, as this is the most important work we can do.  Your work!

Verse Of The Day: 1 Thessalonians 5:16 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
