When my eldest daughter was 13 years old, she flubbed her piano piece at a recital.  The silence in the auditorium was broken only by the pounding of her parents’ hearts.  She hurried off the stage, threw her arms around me and buried her face in my shirt.  “Oh, Daddy.”  That was enough for me.  At that moment I’d have given her the moon.  All she said was, “Oh Daddy!”

Prayer starts here.  Prayer begins with an honest and heartfelt, “Oh Daddy!”  Jesus invites us to approach God the way a child approaches his or her daddy.

Here’s my challenge for you!  Every day for four weeks, pray four minutes.  Then get ready to connect with God like never before!
