Our confidence lies in the fact that God hears the whispers we pray when there is no time for anything else. Whispers in the dark when all is silent and the heart slows down in the calm of lights out.
We throw arrows up and He catches them and puts them safely in His quiver….He knows when there is no practical time to pray but yet our heart is praying without ceasing and our soul is on its knees.
Prayer is the soul catching its breath
Somehow we rise up with wings as eagles and soar with the Spirit…somehow we get everything done, our bodies going through the motions and His Spirit carrying us through. We become a living prayer.
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” Romans 8:26
2 thoughts on “A living prayer”
Reminds me of Keith Green's song:
“Make my life a prayer to You
I wanna do what you want me to
No empty words and no white lies
No token prayers, no compromise…”
Oh! That our whole lives would truly be transformed into prayer…
Amy: Yes, sometimes when I start to pray I realize I am not being real with God, then I have to stop get on my knees and start over! He understands this, He knows us inside and out. Thank you for your comments…..and blessings for the day. Lori
