b's post from earlier this week immediately reminded me of one of my most favorite prayers. a prayer that i memorized when i was a little girl. one of my parents' dearest friends taught it to me, and i was determined to remember it- even at a young age, i knew it's message was paramount in a relationship with jesus. today, i often recite this prayer silently....
give me samuel's ear, an open ear o lord,
alive and quick to hear
each whisper of thy word.
like him to answer at thy call
and to obey thee
first of all.
maybe you too can put this to memory as constant reminder to listen & obey. -j
