Discussing prayer tonight at a class. Focusing on silent prayer. I said this, but it’s surely not original with me. Sorry I don’t know who to attribute it to, but it’s so true.
Stillness and quiet prayer with God is primarily about taking time to let God love you.
Reminded me of a discussion as part of our priest’s preaching learning group recently. One member of the feedback group remarked that the sermons she preaches bring God closer that the sense or imagery of God he heard as a child/younger man. He said something that it’s nice to hear it preached that God loves us, and not just aloof and far away. I remarked, yeah, you can’t hear that preached too often, can you.
Take a little time each day to let God love you.
Peace be with you.
