It Is Prayer Time

Prayer is our humble answer
Everything is a prompt to prayer, every observation, every thought, every event, every circumstance. Laught, tears, disgust, appreciation, sinsults - I could go on - All of these shout in my ears, "It is time to pray! God is here wand waiting for you to start.
 
God comes ... into the scattered dust of our existence and there is something metallic in us and magnetic in Truth that draws us from randomness to reality and purpose.
 
Sometimes, it is an angel voice that calls and sometimes our own random seeking that draws, but always, always, always, there is an invasion of divinity into our little conclaves of humanity that speaks with clarity ....
 
If we will hear, we will hear.
 
"Good when He gives, supremely good;
Nor less when He denies:
Afflictions, from His sovereign hand,
Are blessings in disguise." = Brother Lawrence

And, On Another Topic ...
 
Is it urgent? If so, what is the source of the urge? Is it essential? Then of what is it the essence? Things are not always as locked in as they seem. This is the soil in which I will prayerfully dig at the crest of a new day. Perhaps I will hit bedrock
 
"Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;
maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
(Psalm 82:3-4 ESV)
------------------
It is in finding the message and meaning in our circumstances that make them most worthwhile.
