This Sunday I'm sharing a sermon on prayer. Preaching about prayer is one of my favorite topics. I came up with these statements about prayer. Hope they help you in your prayer life!
Not a way to confirm our own beliefs, but a way of being open to God’s beliefs.
Not a way to tell God how to run the world, but a way to participate in God’s running of the world.
Not a plea from humans to God but a way to discover God’s plea to us.
A terrific way to reduce stress and anxiety.
Not a waste of time but a way to participate in timelessness.
Not a way to talk to the invisible, but a way for the invisible to communicate to us.
Not a way to be silent, but a way to have multiple conversations.
Not guaranteed to change God but over time is guaranteed to change us.
Not a duty or an obligation but an opportunity and privilege.
Not confusing but a way to develop clarity.
Essential to the lungs of our faith.
A mystery which helps us find direction.
An adventure whose path frequently brings new understandings..
