The Way of Prayer

There is a way to prayer. There are steps. And then there aren’t.

Sometimes the first step is sitting up, putting your feet on the floor, and breathing in and out.

Eat , sleep, work.

Knees can get involved. Candles maybe.

An honest soul is perhaps the next step. Open those clenched fists.

Hands might shake. It’s okay. Faith can be so fickle.

There is a way to prayer. There are steps. And then there aren’t.

Eyes might be open or squeezed shut.

There are a lot of words. Or none.

Joy meets sorrow and then sorrow meets joy.

Peace is introduced to chaos.

Breathe.

A grin breaks forth as the bright setting sun causes spots of remembrance.

Remember Me.

Wait.

Make music.

Bring whatever you have.

Rest.

Love.

There is a way to prayer.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way… ” John 14:6
