I enjoy porch sitting this time of year. With the plants all around me, pretty clouds in the sky and the birds chirping away in a distant tree, a wonderful place to sit and talk with God.
I really like this quote by Thomas Merton ~
If you want a life of prayer,
the way to get it is by praying.
Makes sense to me!
Prayer is simple; it's like quietly opening a door and slipping into the very presence of God, there is the stillness to listen to His voice; perhaps to petition, or only to listen: it matters not. Just to be there in His presence is prayer.
'The Heart of a Woman Who Prays'
How do you spell relief?
P R A Y E R
As we make our request known to God through continued prayer we experience the peace of God!
'What's in the Bible for Women'
God listens. Your voice matters in heaven. He takes you very seriously. When you enter His presence, He turns to you to hear your voice. No need to fear that you will be ignored.
'Grace for the Moment'
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Until Next Time
I'll be on the porch,
enjoying the flowers,
watching the dogs play,
just loving the day the Lord has made!
Wish you were here!
