A few weeks ago, we talked in church about prayer. One of the main topics of discussion in our connect group that night was about focusing more on praising God in prayer and less on asking for things.
I got all vulnerable and shared that I feel somewhat awkward telling God just how wonderful and holy He is.
I know, I'm getting all deep on you today.
Basically, I'd be great with singing my praises to Him until the cows come home, but actually saying it to Him in prayer felt strange.
True confession: It's probably because I am out of practice. And whatever I say feels so small compared to how truly great and amazing He is.
Anyway, a very good friend made this suggestion and it really stuck with me. So it became my challenge, and now I share it with you. Maybe you will want to take this challenge as well.
The challenge: Use the ABCs to tell God what He means to you.
And here is my version. Some came easy, some required a thesaurus, but they all apply to our God.
God, you are..
My Comforter and
Enough for me
In the Quiet Moments
Zealous in your love for me
For this and so much more, I thank you God and give You all the praise. Amen.
Who is God to you?
