Prayer
I wanted to write something light and fun today, but after visiting Sarah's blog I just couldn't. It is hard to find the right words when someone is going through difficult times. I know from past experience that the glib "words of wisdom" we sometimes speak as Christians can prove to be hurtful to someone who is suffering. I have finally come to the conclusion that "I'm praying for you" is the most comforting and encouraging word I can speak or hear.
I don't know what it is about prayer. Why is it so difficult to get into a good habit of simply talking with the Lord every day, every moment? Perhaps I shouldn't generalize. I'm sure it isn't difficult for everyone, but it is something I have struggled with all my life.
However, for the past couple of years I have found that I can hardly exist without it. It amazes me to think I have but to speak a word, and the God who created the heavens and earth bends down to hear my prayer. He not only listens but longs to have me come and spend time with Him. And when I do, this God who has millions and millions of children and world events to deal, with listens to me as if I were His only child. No matter how many voices are raised to Him in prayer at that moment, He hears my voice. It is miraculous!!
He not only hears; He has things He wants to say to me too. Things that comfort or teach or bring joy or give me direction.
There are times when I pray, and it feels like the words are bouncing off the ceiling. However, there are times when I sense His presence in such a powerful way I can almost feel His touch. Either way - He hears.
I'm trying to practice His presence these days - talking to Him more and more often as I go about the day, not just during my quiet time. I think He enjoys my company. I can hardly believe such a thing, but He says so in His word. Me - with all my faults and failures. He just loves me.
So I'm praying....for Addison, for her family, for my family.....for so many things - because prayer is a powerful, wonderful, miraculous thing - and because God hears and answers prayer.
Blessings, Linda

I happened upon your blog from Sarah's blog. I enjoyed reading what you wrote about prayer. It's such a special, intimate time with our Lord. Nothing compares to it! And to think that the God of this universe HEARS & CARES?! Amazing:)
