Does your heart tell you to pray? (Psalm 27:8)

"My heart tells me to pray to you,
and I do pray to you, O LORD" - Psalm 27:8 (NET)

I was reading this verse this morning in the NET. I normally blog on the ESV but the ESV version is substantially different. Anyhow I'm writing a paper on Jesus' prayers in Luke. It's just been interesting doing the reading through Luke and look at all the times Jesus prayed.

He seemed to always be praying. He saw life as something to be spent in constant conversation with God. I wish my heart told me to pray, or rather that when it does (because it probably does) I would hear it and then I would pray.

Lord teach my heart its need to pray. Teach me to hear my heart telling me to be in conversation with you.
