Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting yourself in the hands of God, at his disposition, and listening to his voice in the depth of our hearts.
What’s In Your Heart?
God often speaks to us in quiet ways, like the whisper Elijah heard. When has God spoken to you in a whisper? Do you have quiet space and time in your life to hear a whisper?
Peter sinks in the water when he allows his fear to overwhelm him. When have you felt overwhelmed by fear? Can you think of instances when Jesus kept you from drowning in your own fear?

The only day that I can change
Is the one I call today,
As it unfolds before me
And before it fades away.
Yesterday belongs to God
And tomorrow’s in His hand,
So I must do my best today
To make it something grand.
God Bless and Keep You.
