The Quilt

My mom loves to make quilts. I always thought it was neat that she liked to sew. But I never realized how hard it is to sew a blanket by hand.
When I was thirteen, my mom made me a quilt of my own. She prayed for me everytime she sewed on the quilt. That quilt is still on my bed, and I love it! It is special to me. Why? Because it reminds me that my mom is always praying for me. She is a great example of what 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, “Never stop praying.”
My mom doesn’t pray every minute of the day, but she prays as often as she can. The quilt reminds me to pray, too. The Bible is very clear that we should pray all through the day. God wants us to pray about important things and about unimportant things.
Our Bible Reading today is very short and easy to read. But it is sometimes hard to do what these verses tell us to do. God knows everything, but He still wants us to talk to Him. God loves us, and He wants us to tell Him how we feel.
Take time today to talk to God.
