We all have a desire for connection.

We all have a desire for connection with God.

The Lord’s Prayer
Luke 11:1  Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.”

The disciples didn’t ask Jesus to teach them what to pray.

Prayer is more about having the right heart than the right words.

Keys To Connecting With God

Psalm 37:3-5 Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.  4 Delight yourself in the Lord,  and he will give you the desires of your heart.  5 Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.

1 | The Dependence Question –
What do I ultimately trust as my source?
My Daily Devotion Will Reflect My Daily Dependence.

2 | The Consistency Question –
Have I made God honoring decisions?
Consistency is More Important than Perfection.

3 | The Priorities Question –
What is my heart’s central desire?

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

We have to see our Relationship with God as more Valuable than the blessings He provides.
