Praying Is …

Praying Is. . .

Joining hands to pray.

Joining hands to pray together strengthens the bonds of love and sisterhood.

Praying is. . .

God pulling me close,
Drawing me,
Guiding my
heart away from this troubled earth,
to see things above.

Praying is. . .

. . . Desiring
His will to be done
in this place—
as in Heaven—
When my world turns upside down
and life makes no sense.

Praying is. . .

Acknowledging Him,
my stronghold,
my safe place.
For in my day of trouble
I will run to Him.

BUT. . .

There are times
When I am confused:
No response
to prayers
Poured out with tears and anguish!
Did I pray amiss?

Like a raft
On the white-water,
rushing down
the river—
Life’s journey is treacherous.
There seems no escape.

Praying is. . .

Frightened cries
Piercing the air.
“Where is God?”
Does He hear?
How long will He hide from me?
How long must I wait?”

Praying is. . .

Calling in the dark.
“Light my way,
give me hope.
Make this crooked pathway straight.
Shine Your grace on me.”

Praying is. . .

My resting.
Placing trust in Christ;
Choosing Him.
At His throne
I kneel, waiting for His help—
Assured of His grace.

“The LORD . . . He hears the prayer of the righteous.” (Proverbs 15:29)
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD and HE delights in his way.” (Psalm 37:23)
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding,
In all your ways acknowledge HIM, and He shall direct your paths.” (Prov.3:5-6)
