1 Samuel 8.6
How awful! Samuel prayed to God.
God, may this always be our gut reaction, our first response to everything good or bad but especially when things go awry. may we run to you first, talk to you and seek you and what you have to say, what your thoughts are, what your reality is. may we always look to you and be in full recognition that we need you at all times. let you be the one we run to not only when we are in a pickle but for every single thing and at every single moment. may you not only be our last resort, may you not only be the one we go to when we have run out of options. may you not just be one of our many options, no - may you be the only one, may we give you the place you deserve in our hearts, in our minds.
