Sometimes I draw a complete blank.  Then there are weeks like this one.  As I sit to type the “Pastor’s Heart” each week, there are those rare times when writer’s block is a reality.  And on the other side of the coin, there are times (like now) when 3 or 4 ideas are competing for the topic of the week.  Honestly, however, one thought started at the top and stayed there.  A couple of days ago I was looking for a quote for this Sunday’s bulletin, and the one I chose spoke loud and clear.  It’s one that has encouraged me every time I’ve thought about it since I first read it.  And I think it always will.  It’s something the 19th century writer and pastor Andrew Murray penned: “The great thing in prayer is to feel that we are putting our supplications into the bosom of omnipotent love.” Do we really understand to whom we’re talking when we pray?   He’s our Heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally, eternally, and perfectly. He’s the Sovereign God who indeed knows what is best in His omniscience and can do what is best through His omnipotence. Of course this doesn’t mean that life will be easy or without the deep waters of trials.  It’s very easy to take our eyes off the loving Father and put our focus on the difficulty and think that our prayers are going unnoticed.  But when you lift that burden you’re carrying today to the Lord in prayer, be reminded that you are giving that burden over to “the bosom of omnipotent love.”  Think of it as Peter did when he wrote “Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you.”
