Prayer is not easy. Prayer is hard, but nothing that comes easy is worth it. In fact when I’ve prayed wholeheartedly I’ve found the greatest peace in my heart! When you pray you talk to God directly. When you meditate you listen. Sometimes you even get the answers your heart is looking for right in your face in the most subtle ways. Praying is being vulnerable. Its opening your heart to Him in such a raw way because He knows your heart. He knows your intentions, He knows all your fears, your wishes, your most private secrets — the ones you dare not tell anyone. He knows your desires. He knows what breaks your heart and it breaks His heart too and wants you to put all your suffering in His holly hands and rest assured that He will mend you back so beautifully. Like this Japanese word — Kintsukuroi, meaning golden repair, to repair with gold, the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. It also comes to mind the quote by Groucho Marx ‘‘ Blessed are the cracked, for they shall let in the light.’’ Also a friend quoted a bible verse, Matthew 5:3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.’’ He patches up our brokenness with the Holy Spirit. He sent His precious son to die for us, to save us! How can we not trust Him our greatest pain which is so small compared to His grace?! I’ve discovered the miracle of prayer in my brokenness a while ago. For me its hard sometimes, to set time apart of my daily routine to adore Him, to thank Him and then ask for strength, for patience, to bless the poor in spirit, to pray for a loved one, to ask Him to show you to the next right step to a life of servolution for Him. But prayer is a muscle, we must exercise it DAILY. Even if its the smallest but most genuine prayer — HE LISTENS! ❤
