I Didn’t call for any Reason

My phone rang. As I picked it up I recognized the caller as my nephew. The physical distance between us prohibits meeting for coffee.

I said “hello” and he responded with “hello”.

This was followed by silence.

I asked how he was doing and he said he was doing fine.

This was followed by silence.

I then ask if he called for any reason.

He said, “No”.

I carried the conversation from that time on. We didn’t talk about anything that was “important” but my heart was singing as we simply connected. My nephew simply wanted us to talk and I was honored.

I wonder if God would like us to pray from that model.

I know he welcomes us when we call to thank Him, when we cry out for help, and when we ask for guidance.

But, maybe He would love to just hear me say, “Hello” and then let Him carry the conversation.

In Isaiah 50:4 we read that the “Sovereign Lord has given me an instructed tongue that I may know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, waking my ear to listen as one being taught.”

I think tomorrow morning I am going to say Good Morning to God and then listen. If He asks if there is anything He can do for me I will say I just want to hear His voice.

Have you ever prayed for no reason?
