“if we were given all we want here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next” -Elisabeth Elliot
Earlier this week this post that included the quote above greatly encouraged me. I have asked and planned for a lot of things in my life. If my plan had gone accordingly, I would be honeymooning right now. Instead, I got to go to an engaging discussion about prayer tonight. I struggle with prayer. I struggle with how to pray, when to pray, how to not “program” prayer. I get nervous. I don’t speak because I’m afraid. Yet, after I’ve spoken to the Lord, I come away with an overwhelming sense of relief and awe. Not only do I get to speak to Him, but He listens! Even to the minute, petty details of my life. I want to be a prayer warrior and infuse my life with prayer that it bursts at the seams. I want to ask and receive as well as rejoice when I see the amazing things that happen. I can’t wait to see the awesomely cool things that are going to come about due to the changes in my plans. So here goes.
p.s. I won’t be typical and ask everyone to comment with a prayer request, but if you would like to leave one, know that I will be praying for you! If you have something you don’t want to publicize (I definitely know how that goes!) feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com
