Prayer is trusting God
In my deepest, darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer. Sometimes my prayer was ‘Help me.’ Sometimes a prayer was ‘Thank you.’ What I’ve discovered is that intimate connection and communication with my creator will always get me through because I know my support, my help, is just a prayer away.
One of my greatest joys is knowing wherever I am, God is there with me and for me. He never takes a break and runs off to the local coffee house, leaving me floundering. God’s presence within me is His Spirit – the Holy Spirit. Always with me, never departing. So, whether I’m experiencing despair, just a funky day, or having a grumbly attitude, He knows, understands, and will take care of me. Sometimes all I need is a spiritual soul hug, a perfectly timed song, or a gentle (or tough) attitude adjustment. He’s so good at taking care of me . . . and you too.
I am weary with my moaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
