I don’t know how many people actually read this blog as I don’t get a lot of feedback. To date, I have received 5 comments back from people that I have published, and of those 5 comments, 1 has come from 1 person, and the other 4 have come from another person. I’m not going to lie to those of you who read this, or even to myself. I will admit that I am a little on the frustrated side because of that. Actually, let’s take that a step further. I am a bit frustrated with God today. My prayer time this morning was the most difficult that I have experienced in quite some time. Seems I couldn’t concentrate and my mind kept wandering onto things that really don’t matter. For the past week, I’ve felt like I was just marking time and not going anywhere.

Have you noticed something in the above? How many times has the word “I” or a contraction of that word been used? Isn’t it funny how we have a tendency to just think about ourselves. Kind of shows our selfish, self-centered, sinful, human nature, doesn’t it? If only we would take the “I” out of the equation and put Jesus in! I want to encourage you to spend some time over the next few days trying to pray in a manner that takes you out of the prayer and puts Jesus into it. I know I will be praying like that. Like John the Baptist said, “He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less” John 3:30 NLT.
