Daily Inspiration, December 18th

Praying-Hand-

“Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.” (Matthew 6: 6, Message Bible)

I love the way this translation describes the most effective way to pray. Jesus is explaining to his followers how to truly connect with the divine presence and to feel the blessings that come of this awareness. Jesus knew well this practice and proved its potency in his incomparable life.

Make a space for quietness. Consciously choose to protect the time you share alone with God and to make it precious. This verse directs us to be simple and honest, to be ourselves with God and to focus on Him, rather than self. To commune in this way, we are less distracted by our own fears and limits. We are more ready to hear God’s answers, and to feel the Love that so naturally heals.

Worshiping with others can be wonderful, unifying, uplifting, and comforting. But, Jesus’s way, the quiet, humble, secluded time with our Father-Mother, is powerful. We have cleared a space meant just for prayer and have devoted these moments to this sole purpose. In our consecration, we have already chosen God over all else, and this is an open invitation to amazing grace.
