"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful."
Insight: I don't know about you, but I have a lot of goals & dreams I long to accomplish in my lifetime. And like any good or worthy goal, they will all take hard work & discipline - or in other words, they will take a measure of devotion. Sometimes I can get caught up & even overwhelmed when I think of all the things I should be devoting my time to in order to see these dreams & goals become a reality. But Scripture reminds me that one of the most important things I should be devoted to is prayer - talking with my Father & listening to His heart. Yes, we need to work hard, but we need to pray harder. All things of any true significance in our lives will come from & succeed because of communion with our Heavenly Father.
Prayer: Father, help me to never forget that talking with You is the most important part of my day and my life. May I be devoted to prayer, more than anything else I might pursue or work towards in life. Amen.
