Prayer is so simple
It is like quietly opening a door
and slipping into
the very presence of God.
There, in the stillness,
to listen for His voice,
perhaps in petition,
or only to listen,
it matters not.
Just to be there,
in His presence,
is prayer.

When all other courses of action have been eliminated, when we stand on the edge of the abyss, when we approach God with empty hands and an aching heart, then we draw close to the true heart of prayer.

When God Doesn't Answer Your Prayer

More things are wrought by prayer
than this world dreams of.

    Ugh. This dug into my soul. Sometimes the answer is no, but I don't believe there is ever a time He "doesn't answer."

    1. I agree Sandi, sometimes we confuse 'no answer' with 'no' for an answer. God always answers our prayers.

  6. Prayer is such a privilege.....and an honor to be able to talk to our Father.

  7. Nice post - it's the listening part that can often be forgotten in our quest for answers. Sometimes I spend too much time asking and not enough time listening for the answer.
