This morning as I gathered milk, bowl, spoon, cereal and my will to begin the day, I thought of my relationship with God. I wondered about whether I was adding fruit to His tree. I began to pick apart the really small things in my life and investigate them.
This train of thought took me to the act of pouring the cereal into my bowl; wait, should I pray before or after I pour the cereal?
What a silly thought.
I should be praying while I gather the items mentioned, and thankfully, in a way I was. In fact, as I decided when to "officially" pray, I was indeed carrying on an informal conversation with my maker.
Prayer should be serial. Serial prayer is talked about in
: pray all the time (The Message). The Korean version says, pray without ceasing. Wow, I may have been in the zone during breakfast, but I'm really going to need's God's help to graduate from cereal prayer to serial prayer.
1st Timothy 5:17
God, could you pass the serial, please? I need some more.
