A JOLT-PRAY-ER

Sometimes we need a jolt. Sometimes our days need a jolt. Sometimes our prayer-life needs a jolt! There are times where we get stuck in the every day and don’t take time to pray –and pray hard! We get wrapped up in our jobs. We pray for our friends and tend to get in the routine of saying the same type words over and over to God. Why do we do this? Our world is ever changing, no day is EXACTLY the same. We have new people come in and out of our lives, we take unlikely new routes and at the very least we CHANGE INTO NEW CLOTHES! (especially our underwear) We have different experiences. Why can’t we change up our prayers? I’m the world’s worse about repeating a prayer. Every morning when I do our announcements here at work, and we do the moment of silence, I say basically the same silent prayer. Does God find this redundant? Does He roll His eyes at me? I bet He does do that to us if the prayer we say is just empty words we are repeating out of habit. Who wouldn’t!?

So, TODAY, I had a jolt! I couldn’t find my wallet. I am usually a fairly calm, laid back kinda gal, but I’m gonna tell ya, that was not the case here. I tried to stay even. I prayed immediately. I kept on praying. When I went home to search there, I got on my knees and pleaded. I was serious, I was intense, I was fervently asking for the hand of God to come help me and quick! I remember especially praying these words: “Please Lord allow me to find my wallet so I can have a great rest of my day.” I know, kind of weird words, but they were sincere and REAL. Why don’t I pray like this all the time!? Looking back at my JOLT from today, I hope God knows I don’t want to be a boring, non-meaningful pray-er. I want to be in constant communication with Him. I want to praise Him most of all. I know that all things come from Him. I am happy because HE has given me the hope of each day, each tomorrow and of eternity. There’s nothing routine or mundane about that! I want to be a JOLT-PRAY-ER all the time no matter what is going on!

My ending did turn out happy today…I found the wallet! I got on my knees (outside by my car even!) and thanked God at that very moment! It wasn’t in passing either–it wasn’t a habitual praising prayer–it was a JOLT PRAISING PRAYER WITH MEANING AND SINCERITY! I thank God for JOLTING me today! (“…so I can have a great rest of my day.”)
