Prayer

I believe prayer is the most sacred, and most essential ingredient to a soul-satisfying relationship with the Lord. It is through prayer that one is able to unreservedly pour out his heart, whether in praise, supplication, confession, or silence. Being able to freely pray allows for me as a Christian on a journey of discipleship, to cry out to my Creator, Sustainer, and Faithful Friend. Prayer affords me the honor of being ushered into the throneroom and to enter the sanctifying river of the blood that purchased my soul. I am able to calculate my beauty and worth through the eyes of eternity, where it will never be swayed and dimenished by the winds and voices of the world. Prayer is the most powerful tool and weapon, I believe, we have as Christ-followers. It has the power and authority to change lives, to move mountains, and to pave a way for God to be glorified and exalted in all things.

I am a quote lover. I found this on the blog of a friend.

"If you want a life of prayer, the way to get it is by praying... You start where you are and you deepen what you already have" - Thomas Merton

Father, I ask you to cultivate this sacred practice in me so that, in all circumstances, I may become captive to its power and its grace. Thank you for this most intimate and incredibly beautiful gift.
