Blue Lake Forest on a Dewy Morning

Blue Lake Forest on a Dewy Morning

Do you have a special time to pray?
That time when you can
listen and hear God’s voice,
be aware of God’s companioning,
God’s presence?
Yes, God is present always.
Still,
those times when we are
most present to God
seem to be those times
when God’s presence
is closest to us.
Taking time out for God
is, in a very real way,
taking time out for ourselves—
stopping and regenerating.
It does not need to be at
any one particular time.
But making time and
mental/spiritual/emotional space
is required.
The song lyric,
“I come to the garden alone,
while the dew is still on the roses,”
Sets the stage for how best to pray.
Where are our gardens?
How does beauty surround us as we pray?
Where is the silence
to hear the still voice of God?
Where do we turn in crisis,
and how have we practiced
in prayer
for those times
when we most need
God’s companioning?
