pray as you experience lifePosted: February 15, 2016 Filed under: Prayer, Religion, Spirituality Leave a comment
Some months back my church posted the following on Facebook:
Pray as you actually experience life,
rather than as you might wish it to be.
I like this a lot. After all we can’t fool God. Every Sunday the priest reminds us: “Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid…”
It’s tempting to act as if things are as we would want them to be, and we certainly ought to be focusing on our goals and moving those things forward. At the same time, it’s important to acknowledge where we really are.
Now implementing that, there’s the challenge.
