Prayer


"Prayer is not merely bringing certain request to God. Prayer is the highest revelation of our fitness for fellowship with God. It begins with the deep humility that knows that it is nothing. It has no desire but to meet God in the fellowship of His love; and then with the whole being continually to live in absolute surrender, to do and to be, what and how the Beloved pleases."

"It begins with the deep humility that knows that it is nothing." - Wow, thanks for sharing. Such a profound thought - one I need to take on, and chew, and meditate some more. I keep checking your blog and saw this post, but hadn't really read thoroughly the whole thing. So I'm glad I did this time - thanks for your encouragement. Love ya, Ruth Ann :)
