If talking to God has become more of a routine than a relationship, it might be time to stop asking Him for things, and instead give thanks.
This morning I was in a hurry, so I quickly moved through the requests that I keep track of with a prayer app on my smartphone. I suddenly stopped and realized one of my requests that I've been praying for, had been answered! I hadn't even noticed it yet.
So, I stopped asking and started thanking Him. He heard the cry of my heart, and met my need. He always fulfills His promises.
The thing about thanking God for answered prayers - it reminds you what's possible. If He answered that one, He'll answer the next too.
As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength. -Psalm 138:3
