The always present Presence

I realize with prayer that I truly do may myself available to the presence of God, to His holiness.  This awareness, at least briefly, lifts  me beyond thoughts and words and actions. it is a delightful place to be, knowing also that God delights in each of us, His children.

There is no end to prayer

“There is no end to prayer. It echoes on forever in your soul. Long after the visible demonstration has been made and forgotten, the prayer that produced it continues to work for your spiritual advancement, for the creative power of a God thought is unlimited and eternal.”  Emmett Fox

“In prayer, we need to speak whatever truth is in us: pain and grief, fear and disappointment, yearning and desire, questions and doubts, hope and faith, failure and weakness, praise and thanks, despair and sorrow, anger, and yes, even hatred.”  Marjorie J. Thompson
I enjoy envisioning my prayers as spreading far, far beyond my mere ego mortality. They certainly are more “treasures in heaven” than anything else I try to do by myself here on earth.
