from the pages of Patrick's
Personal Spiritual Journal
Indicates a lack of love. I talk with those I love. If I cannot talk
with them it creates an ache in my heart. And yet I can go hours without
speaking to my Lord. And days without true heart-to-heart communication.
Prayerlessness also indicates a lack of faith. Even if love will not motivate
one to prayer, a desire for supernatural providence may provide ample
motivation, unless we do not, in our real thinking, not our theology, believe
that God is powerful and active. Again, if we do not truly desire what He
desires, then we will not pray. If I do not trust his desires, I will not ask
for them. I will pray if I love him, believe in him and trust him, wanting what
he wants. Open our hearts to be changed by your Holy Spirit into believers who
love and trust.
