Rightly Approaching Prayer

Psalm 16:11b...In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand are pleasures forever.

In our thinking about and considering prayer,
it should not be a task to be accomplished,
something to get done and get out of the way;
but it should be a relationship to be enjoyed,
a communion to be anticipated, a joy and a delight
in drawing near to Him and coming before His throne.

For, after all, the chief end of man is to glorify God,
and to enjoy Him forever.  Our enjoying Him should
be part of our existence now, with the greater and fuller joy,
 the hope of the completeness of joy, a promise to be relished.
