PRAYING: MEDITATION AND CONTEMPLATION
Without that still space we start spinning. We become driven people, running all over the place without much direction. But with that stillness God can be our gentle guide in everything we think, say, or do. HENRI NOUWEN
The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but un-offered prayer. Many people don’t realize that prayer can change even the fate of nations. There is no limit to the power of prayer. It is the ultimate spiritual arm and no earthly power can stand against it. What does the Bible say about prayer?
“The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” Luke 18:25 “Let us come boldly to the throne of grace.”Hebrews 4:16 “Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17
“Ask of Me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession.” Psalm 2:8
- I call to mind this truth, with love
- I ponder it, with love
- I embrace it, with love
- I see the person.
- I hear the words.
- I observe the actions.
