Prayer - The Overflow

June 13, 2021 | Adam Morris

Passage: 1 Samuel 2:1-11

I’ve found it to be true in my own prayer life: I rush to ask God for things rather than “hallowing” His name. After all, He is the only one worthy of glory, honor, and praise. Why, then, when we come to Him in prayer do we not take more time to just remember His majesty, character, and glory? Why is it that we sing worship songs to Him from the pews but rush through worshipping Him when we pray?

Have you ever come home from a long day and said hello to your loved ones only to have them reply with a request? I wonder if God feels that way with us sometimes. When we’re going through a trial or a struggle we run to Him to ask for things (as we should!) but is it possible that the peace we are looking for is not found in a change of our situation but rather having a different posture in our prayers? Maybe our peace rests in remembering who He is and spending time with Him rather than rushing to focus on what He can provide.
