As often as I pray you’d think I’d be better at it. But so often my words feel stilted, my requests more rote and less soul.

Then today in church Dr. Bragan delivered a meditation on prayer that changed the way I think about it. For one thing, he said, God already knows our prayers before we pray them. (I guess I knew that? But still, I find it so comforting.) For another, he said, all God wants is for us to sit in communion with Him. To just be present. Aware. Together.

I love that.

And so I shall spend some time this week giving it a shot. Hanging with The Big Guy, just Him and me.

Quiet.

No words.

All heart.

    Thank you for the reminder that He already knows our prayers. I tend to forget that and while praying. I usually meander around in my head looking for the right words to say. Getting out of my own way so I am just present is the challenge for me! Look forward to hearing how it goes for you this week as you practice!
    Thank you again!
    Peace and love

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
