A couple weeks ago, I changed the subtitle to this weblog from “Watch your step…” (a play on words with the title of this journal) to “Got prayer?” because it seems to fit more with who I am and what I would really like to ask any visitors to this weblog. This morning, I changed the subtitle once again to “God is only a prayer away…”. I found that on a prayer card a week ago. This new subtitle is a gentle reminder that we are all connected to something much larger than ourselves—Love. But if you think about it, we are all connected all the time, not just in prayer. Prayer lets us be more aware of it.
Today we are living in an age of instant communications. But do you realize what a unique form of communication prayer is? Prayer enables us to meet God at the most profound level of our being. It connects us directly to God, the living God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in a constant exchange of love.
