Live in obedience (1 Samuel 15:22-23)

Lord,

You want our obedience and as simple as that is, we often forget it

We think you want only our ritual and sacrifice
       Our church attendance
       Our repeated prayers
       Our money
       Our taking of communion
       Our regular bible reading

While you do love us doing all these things for you, you only love it when it is done with the right heart.

What you want above all is our obedience.

Lord, help me to be obedient
       Let me learn your ways so that I may obey them
       Let me learn your words so that I may obey them

Forgive me, Lord, for my disobedience and reliance on the things I can give you or do for you. 

Instead, Lord, please change my heart and make me obedient.

Amen.
