Hebrews 4:16

 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

There are at least two ways we may approach God’s throne of grace — barely or boldly. Barely means we slink our way toward His throne expecting to be thrown out at any second. Boldly means we accept God’s open invitation to come into His presence as His own dear child.

When our oldest grandson, Zane, was quite small, he used to follow my dad around like a shadow.  Zane and his great grandfather had a close relationship. From time to time, being a normal boy, something that he was playing with would break.  Zane would never be upset.  He would confidently exclaim, “Papa fitz it!”  For those of you who have a hard time with kid talk, that means “Grandpa will fix it!”  That should be our attitude toward the Lord.

How then should we pray? With praise and assurance that God will use all situations to bring about His goodness and grace. We pray with anticipation, looking for the answers, paying attention to what is happening, and eager to give God the glory. Three things to remember when we go to the Lord in prayer:  ATTITUDE! ATTITUDE! ATTITUDE!

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
