Do you ever think that maybe you are getting it all wrong? Sometimes, I question my prayer competency. I imagine that there’s some mystical algebraic prayer equation written in invisible ink that’s way beyond my understanding. Maybe my mountain never crumbles because I am “asking amiss.”
I fumble to figure it out every morning. Maybe if I were more eloquent, my prayers would be more effective. Maybe if my thoughts were less scattered, my prayers would stop hitting the ceiling.
How do I stay focused and fervent day after day? How do I keep asking for the same thing without sounding like a broken record?
I won’t find the answer by making more noise. The Lord speaks in a still small voice.
I must unplug from the social media static and sit quietly at His feet.
This weekend, let’s slow down and open up the Word of Life. Imagine that you are the psalmist and overlay the sacred script on your weary soul. Let each phrase linger on your tongue as a personal plea. Put pen to paper as you contemplate His divine nature full of goodness and glory. In the quiet of your heart, whisper one request:
Lord, show me how You work. School me in Your ways.
Let’s Pray Big in Community:
This year, my desire is to lift up holy hands and “Pray Big.” Want to join me? I’ve created a private “Pray Big” Facebook group for like-minded sisters to share their stories and surrender each one to our mountain-moving God in prayer. Let’s cry out to God together.
