Jesus challenges me to change my mind about how to pray. We are steeped in the religious way to do it. That is not the God way.
Here’s what He wants me to do:
- Find a quiet, secluded place so I won’t be tempted to role-play before God.
- Just be there as simply and honestly as I can manage.
- The focus will shift from myself to God, and I will begin to sense his grace.
May I accept the Jesus prayer challenge.
The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 6 The Message)
