All of Life is Prayer

Posted on Posted in Nurturing Ourselves

all of life is prayer

Recently I was encouraged to write three pages every day of everything on my mind.  A curious thing happened.  While I started just writing everything on my mind, it very quickly turned into a prayer.  All that was on my mind was offered to my Lord as a prayer.

The things that were worrying me.  The things that I was happy about.  The things that I wanted to do.  The things I was frustrated that I did.  All of the thoughts on my mind turned into prayer.  It reminded me of 1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Pray without ceasing.  All of life is prayer.

I can offer my thoughts, my writing, my diary, my written prayers, my words out loud and in my head – all to Him.  He knows all of my thoughts anyway!  Psalm 139:2 (MSG) says “you know what I am thinking”.   And all of it – the good, the bad, and the ugly – can be offered to Him in prayer.

He knows what I am thinking and He loves me.  He listens to me and He loves me.  How amazing is that!  What joy comes from being known and being loved.  What rest I can have from my worries, my frustrations.  He knows and He loves me no matter what.

Be encouraged my friend – all of life is our prayer to Him who loves us!
