What is Prayer

What is Prayer

What is prayer?
You don’t need language for a conversation or the permission of a sabbath day.
Let your words rest for awhile.
Hold instead the symbols of your longing - like a blank canvas, a broken cup or a large question mark.
Then wait.
You can go about your life. Get things done.
But stay attentive and aware to notice your life unfolding - your canvas filling, your cup finding purpose, your questions forming and being answered.

What is prayer?
It is an internal posture
That opens your heart, allows you to trust, and creates the possibility for change.
