( This thought has been running through my mind all week....How do our prayers show our gratitude to God?)
I know I did not fully appreciate the significance of prayerful greetings until I became a Mother.....now I sense how our Heavenly Father may appreciate our prayers, morning and night. Just as a Mother loves to hear from her children....their sorrows, joys and happy times.
.. knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (3 Nephi 27:29; D&C 4:7; 49:26;
66:9; 88:63; see also Matthew 7:7).
But I can imagine the pangs of his sorrow because of silence from any of his children. Each time my day has hurried by and perhaps I had forgotten to pray....the thought comes to my mind....what if my Children were too busy and didn't take the time to talk to me how would I feel?
Then I quickly pray.
To me, I would be showing ingratitude to not pray/talk/give thanks to the Lord. Like a goldfish oblivious to the kind person who sprinkles food in their bowl. (smile)
I don't what to be that goldfish....
I want Him to know that he is loved, wanted and appreciated. I never want the Lord to question that....to me that would be ingratitude.
I need not worry that I have words of a scholar/ or grand adventures to share...just remember...He just wants to hear my voice and feel my heart. (as does a Mother)
Happy Sabbath day .
