Thank you Lord that you do hear my prayers, my continuing conversations with you. You know what is on my heart. You know what’s going on in my life. You long for me to “call home” and talk to you. You listen and you reply if I will listen. Through your Holy Spirit, you direct me, give me suggestions. Thank you Lord in all things, even when I might think you are not listening. “May (my) whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thes 5:23
