Devotion for September 16

John 16:24 NIV

“Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.”

By now we have asked God for something. Right now I am praying for rain for area farmers who desperately need it. Sometimes we don’t see God’s answers. Sometimes we pray for things we don’t really want like to be closer to God. I pray today to listen closer, think of others, and to use God’s gifts wisely. Have a prayerful day.
