Pray…Anytime You Wish…

"God warms his hands at man's heart when he prays."  
---John Masefield 

I am inspired by the words and wisdom of this children’s book written by a friend. It is a simple message yet something so powerful that we take for granted so much. A reminder of sorts that we really can, and God expects us to, pray wherever we are and anytime we wish.

Deuteronomy 31:6  New International Version (NIV)
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

I have an ongoing conversation going on in my mind with God, everyday. Some days, I simply say, ‘Thank you for taking care of me and my family today, Lord.” Over and over and over. Some days I’m more specific but most of my prayers begin with Thank you… Prayer gives me so much peace and strength that why wouldn’t I pray even if it is the same prayer over and over sometimes.

"There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God."
- Brother Lawrence
