Doing the Last Thing ~ Prayer: One Word 2013

What was the last thing that God told you to do? Did you complete it, or carrying it out diligently.

How is that attention span? How often do I get bored with the last thing that God told me to do?

I’m from one thing to the next like a bouncy ball. My Father is standing there waiting for me to settle down so that He can speak again.

I get caught up in the hype and going-on of my friends. The next awesome Bible Study, Scripture memory, etc.

I need that fellowship and direction. I’m not told to not to those things.

What I am to do is to continue to do the last thing that God told me to do.

Out of breath…or wanting to seek God on something new, He isn’t standing there tapping His foot or wagging a finger at me.

He asks, “Are you done now? Are you ready to do the last thing that I told you to do?”

“Stay in prayer, My daughter.”

Okay! I can do that!

I start devouring books about prayer, being a prayer warrior, spiritual warfare. Scripture after Scripture about prayer.

My soul is filling to overflow. I’m loving time with my Daddy.

I start to get ahead of myself; forgetting all of the aspects of prayer.

My mind races to different prayer “campaigns” that I can start!

Maybe a weekly prayer link for my readers, or making up a “How to pray for ___” kind of printable.

“Listen! Sit still, girl and listen to Me.”

So now…

Prayer. Sitting. Resting. Prayer. Listening. Prayer. Doing

Prayer focus for now:

“…But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”  Matthew 6:6
“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17
There is so much to be said about prayer. SO MUCH more to understand.

I’ll never have an exhaustive amount of knowledge of how to pray, what to pray, breakthroughs by prayer.

That’s what God’s daily bread is for.
That’s what seeking His wisdom is for.
That’s what “staying by the stuff” is for.

Please know that 2013 is a continued year of prayer carried over from 2012.

I’m praying for YOU, my friend!

If you have a specific prayer need, I encourage you to message me mail@kelanellums(dot)com.
