Prayer Is…

Prayer is not magic.

Prayer is not a Christmas wish list.

Prayer is not a get-out-of-jail-free card.

Prayer is not a way to shape God into our image.

Prayer is saying, “God, I cannot do this.”

“God, I need you to walk with me through this.”

“God, I do not understand this.”

“God, I am scared.”

I do not always get what I ask for when I pray.  Yet I will still pray.  Because The One to whom I pray is never absent.  The One to whom I pray is ever-present and ever-comforting.  The One to whom I pray never leaves me alone.

“I lift my eyes to the hills.  Where does my help come from?  My help comes from the LORD, the maker of heaven of earth.”
