In times such as these it is important to consider things of lasting value and significance. When it seems the world is falling apart on every hand, in every sector, we as human beings are knocked off of our feet. We tend to lose our bearings. It is then that we MUST ask the question, 'How long has it been since I talked to the Lord and told Him my heart's hidden secrets?'
You may be too embarrassed or too proud to tell any other human being about your worries and fears in times such as this, and many of us do not wish to be a burden to our families and friends.
But a person needs to talk to someone. How long has it been since you talked to God? Can you call Him your Friend? How long has it been since you knew that He cared for you?
Prayer: "We come to you, O God, longing for a Friend who really cares, who will listen to us at the deepest part of our being. We thank you that you are that Friend that 'stays closer than a brother.' Help us not to forget to make time for You. Help us to remember to pray and pour out our hearts to you. We pray for the nation at this hour, and as dark clouds gather on the horizon, remind us of the eternal hope we have in You. In Jesus' name, Amen."
