Longing for God – Day 249
May you always be joyful in your union with the Lord. I say it again: rejoice! Show a gentle attitude towards everyone. The Lord is coming soon. Don't worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart. And God's peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus.
Prayer: the astonishing privilege of talking with God. These readings include prayers of longing and lament, Jesus’ teaching on prayer, and some of the best loved prayers in the Bible
