I am realizing that prayer is not something that I take care of, and then get on with life. I pray throughout the day, whatever I'm doing. At least, that's the prayer state I'm working toward.
The more I pray, the more tuned in I am to the work of God around me. Just today I got a piece of information that could turn into an answer to a big prayer of mine. Guide me, Jesus, as I pursue your will.
This is serious business, prayer. God uses prayer to shape this world. Of course I want to be part of that. I hope I'm catching on.
