What do you believe about prayer? We often describe prayer as communication with God and God to us. Yet, in our other relationships, there are times where words are never spoken and communication occurs. For instance, there were many nights where my daughter would sit next to me on the sofa, and we might go a long time without uttering a single word. But, if you ask me if we communicated, I would wholeheartedly say, “Yes.” If you asked her, she would answer the same.
Don’t discount the importance of presence. Simply being in the presence of God can be enough. The lesson is can we sit still long enough to communicate. Give it a try, it might surprise you.
