Heart of God

Dear Prayer Partners,

In his book on prayer, Richard J. Foster referred to the heart of God as “an open wound of love.” He described the Father as the one who “ aches over our distance and preoccupation “… who “mourns that we do not draw near to him”…who “grieves that we have forgotten him.”

Seeing the heart of God from this viewpoint is compelling. How could we not rush headlong into the arms of the God who loves us so much, the one who longs to commune with us? How can we not realize that he is waiting daily to meet with us, to speak to us, to hear us? And yet in our busyness we                                                          rush right past him.

This Sunday we will join together and reflect upon how Jesus taught us to pray, based on the biblical text of     Luke 11:1-13.

Still in one peace,
Pastor David J. Jensen
