on prayer

Prayer should be called “hugs from dad.” A space of complete comfort, complete wholeness. While some of us don’t have the best memories of our earthly Dad’s, those fatherly missteps are redeemed in the time spent with our ABBA, the one who made each part of us, and who wouldn’t change a thing.

Prayer is, at its core, a discussion. A discussion between the created and the Creator, a discussion between the chosen and the Chooser, a discussion between the protected and the Protector.

Prayer changes things, and should ignite change within you.

There is no “certain way” to pray. Sure there are suggestions and traditions, but the way you come to your Father is as unique as how you come at life. And He delights in it all.

There is no striving in His presence, and because He dwells in and around us, there is no striving here.

Prayer doesn’t have to be perfectly worded, it doesn’t have to start pretty and end pretty.

Prayer isn’t the space that you figure it all out, it’s the space where you begin your journey to the place where it all fits.

Cry, lament, laugh, ignite, smile, and frown in prayer. Bring it all to the One who knows all, and find rest in complete acknowledgement of every fault and triumph.

You are His beloved. You are in a holy place.

Prayer changes things, and prayer should ignite a change within you.

Let it.
