Dave’s Valley Views: Lord, would you show me the weaknesses of my faith

Pastor-David-Bruce

It always amazes me that prayer is one of the Lenten disciplines.

Prayer ought to be a daily part of our lives.

But studies have shown that the average Christian spends less than 3 minutes a day in prayer.

We often find that our prayer life is elevated in times of distress.

It’s easy for us to pray when a loved one is hurt and is rushed to the hospital.

We often pray for folks as they travel on the highways.

But how often do we ask God to shine his truth in our lives so we can see where we are falling short in our walk with him.

It’s like sending a letter to the IRS and saying that you would like to go through a tax audit each year!

Yet, that’s what Lent asks of us … Lord, would you show me the weaknesses of my faith – of my obedience to you?

I have a friend who is faithful in AA – and he says, “I’m constantly taking an inventory.”

It has helped him keep free from the destruction of alcohol … 

It’s not easy to be honest with self – or to ask God to reveal to you who you really are – but unless we admit our shortcomings we can not seek to overcome them.

From Enterprise Christian Church … God Bless!
