A Different Perspective - July 10

On Solid Ground

by Berni Dymet

Romans 12:12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.

The surveys tell us, over the last month, two-thirds of all people prayed. Two-thirds! What's that about?

Maybe a prayer of desperation, or a sense of duty perhaps. But how many of us discover the sheer wonder and delight of prayer? How many ever unlock the real power of prayer? 

You know what happened for me when I started to pray - seriously? God started showing up. And now - now I'm hooked. Because when I pray, I have this, this quiet assurance. This deep sense of peace and joy, you know?

And it's something I only have, when I take those few minutes each day to pray. And it doesn't seem to matter then what the world throws at me. My feet are on solid ground. 

There's a whole bunch of things in my life - I don't know how they're going to turn out. I just don't.

But He does. I know. Because when I was praying this morning He just filled my heart with, with something you can't put into words.
