Looking for His Face

When I pray, I have to remember that I am looking for a PERSON.  “If my people who are called by my Name will humble themselves and pray and seek my FACE. . .”  Sometimes I get caught in busy stress.  I get locked inside myself.  I become a closed loop–seeing my own needs, hearing my own ideas.  Prayer is God’s break in this chain of isolation.  “Come unto ME and I will give you rest”  Today when you pray will you look for Him?  Will you set as your goal that, even if you have not fixed every problem or settled every question, at least you have spoken with a friend, confided in a Father?  “The Lord bless you and keep you.  The Lord make his FACE to shine upon you, and give you peace.”
