prayer for the day

from Richard Foster (via JR Briggs)

Dear Jesus,

How desperately I need to learn to pray. And yet when I am honest, I know that I often do not even want to pray.

I am distracted!

I am stubborn!

I am self-centered!

In your mercy, Jesus, bring my “want-er” more in line with my “need-er” so that I can come to want what I need.

In your name and for your sake, I pray.

Amen.
