“... it is not a cowardly thing to pray.”

By: Admin on July 21, 2014

As part of my morning solitude time, I was reading from My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. He reminded me that, "When a man is at his wits' end it is not a cowardly thing to pray, it is the only way he can get in touch with reality." I don't know about you, but I need a daily dose of God's reality. We live in a world where people are driven by their perceptions of reality and often form opinions based on what they hear, what they see, and what they think. We are guilty of forming perceptions that are based on limited information and having only a limited number of pieces to what might be a much larger puzzle. We form opinions that become hard to change. We make judgements that become cemented in the stone. We put people in a box, or worse. We create a perception of reality that lacks any kind of hope for redemption or growth. This is why we need to pray. Prayer, for me, is a constant reminder that my perception of reality might not represent truth. It reminds me that I don't understand the in's and out's of why people do what they do, or think what they think, or act like they act. Prayer reminds me that I can be misunderstood, so giving others the benefit of the doubt is always the best policy. Prayer reminds me that God's perception of reality is the only one that really matters, because it's founded in absolute truth.
