I don’t post my thoughts about prayer because I think they are especially worthy or profound. Rather, they are humble offerings, a sharing, because I believe that we learn about God and grow in faith by hearing what others are feeling and experiencing. The writings of theologians and lay people, both ancient and contemporary, are available in book form—just a click away. But what about you and me, each immersed in our particular situation, trying to keep life together? You and me, who feel called to be prayerful and who long to feel God’s presence?
Hearing from others who are also trying to lead a prayerful, God centered life, give me more encouragement and hope than all the religious books on my shelf. That is why I write these prayerdiary ditties.
