Prayer


Every morning, i take a moment of quiet...and in the stillness i pray this prayer...

'Broken...I now talk with God.
O Lord Jesus my saviour.
Today my heart is empty.
Pride is the thing I will miss least when time comes to and end.
I need a priest.
I need a preacher.
I need an exorcist to banish the snake I've been handling called...self.
I need you.
Broken...I now talk to God.
(Ben Pearson: Taken from Ragamuffin Prayers, CCM Books)

Today I need a friend that can listen ....maybe I should turn to God first before exhausting all other possibilties who are actually failing me today.

...and yet sometimes god can seem distant even when he/she is close...sometimes god inhabits humans best...sometimes

Sometimes God is neither in your friends nor anywhere you turn...where is he then?

good question when he/she is supposed to be omnipresent

When I feel that God is not in my friends or not where I am turning, I usually need to stop turning, sit still, and quiet within me that which is obscuring my vision.

sometimes the stillness and silence of God is so deafening we struggle to hear because it all seems so beyond us...for me it's not about 'hearing' but sensing a kind of hunch somewhere deep within us
