Daily Step – Prayer is simply a doorway.

It isn’t a contest.

Not really.

I don’t have to work so hard at it.

The words don’t have to be perfect.
The grammar impeccable.
The penmanship flowing and beautiful.

The story I need to share doesn’t need to have all the details worked out in sequential order.

The problem I need to voice doesn’t already need to have 3 or more possible solutions before I voice it.

Instead, I can simply say:

God, I’m hurt.
God, I’m a mess right now.
God, I don’t know where I am going.
God, I need your grace.

Or I can say nothing at all.

I can just sit.
And wait.
And know.

That there is someone always listening to my heart.

“It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones;


pay attention, then patch
a few words together…”

And then be quiet.

So God can speak.
