“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

Hebrews 4:16

Do you remember the famous photo of President John F. Kennedy working in the Oval Office as his two-year-old son played under his desk? It gave the idea that “John-John” had constant access to his daddy, no matter how important a man his father was. Magnify that thought: You and I have constant access in prayer to the God of the Universe!

“Eternal God, so high above us that we cannot comprehend you, and yet so deep within us that we cannot escape from you, make yourself real to us in our very heart of hearts. It is in this inner place that we carry out our own conversation with ourselves every day. It is also here that we talk to you, Lord, in prayer.

“We thank you, Father, for prayer itself, for inviting us to come directly to you, for giving us instant access with no waiting, no busy signal, no answering machine, no voicemail, not even phone tag. We thank you for this mind-boggling personal relationship with you. Prayer is like having you always at the back of our minds so that in every action we make, there you are!”
