Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

I always feel inadequate when it comes to prayer
I know, seems odd coming from a pastor
but seriously

there are those prayers
that are long
full of amazing phrases

and then there my short little offerings

I am sorry, I just can't do it
especially when it comes to public prayer

its not my thing!

its not that I don't pray
but my prayers are....

I walk outside in the morning
and see the tamaracks turning golden in the fall air
and I say, "thank you'

I see a person walking down the street
that I know is struggling
and I say "be with them Lord"

I look at my own struggles
and I simply say help

I am a walking prayer
my prayers may be as short as word
and are rarely longer than a sentence

I'd like to think God understands!

  1. you know pastor, there are prayers that can be said without speaking a word. personally, i don't think long prayers impress God. its all according to whats in our hearts! so wether we use 5 words or twenty five words...the blessings will be the same.
