…one of his disciples said, “Lord teach us to pray.” Luke 11:1
And he answered them.
If there are things people might know me by, have to come to mind when my name is mentioned,
May it be that I pray and that I love.
That love may not only show in acts; but my eyes reflect the softness of accepting another…as they are.
And may my prayers be quietly powerful, repelling all harsh or hard things, wrapping others in the beautiful paradox of God’s gentle strength.
More than my paintings, expressive words, talks in fancy settings or boastful sharings of the gifts of my children and family.
Not some big to-do, just lots and lots of little “do’s” done with love. Constant and confident recollections of God hearing my prayer and coming near, of His demonstrative love towards us all.
Love and prayer, prayer and love. Content in this place of solitude, this pursuit of discipleship,
I pray I be.
