Sometimes when you don’t feel like praying, or you’re consumed with needing to speak to the Lord but can’t gather the words, try that old standby....
Count your many blessings, count them one by one.
It’s amazing how you can get carried away from worries and woes and self-concern when you start naming out loud what you’re thankful for. Right away, your focus shifts from your needs to the Father’s graciousness and love.
