Talking with God

 

Not sure how to pray? Not certain what prayer even is? You’re not alone. Prayer takes many forms and we can pray in many ways. In fact, our lives can become a prayer.

Romans 8:26-27 

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.


 Prayer

by Marie Howe

 

Every day I want to speak with you. And every day something more important

calls for my attention—the drug store, the beauty products, the luggage

I need to buy for the trip.

Even now I can hardly sit here

among the falling piles of paper and clothing, the garbage trucks outside

already screeching and banging.

The mystics say you are as close as my own breath.

Why do I flee from you?

My days and nights pour through me like complaints

and become a story I forgot to tell.

Help me. Even as I write these words I am planning

to rise from the chair as soon as I finish this sentence.
