One of the most precious gifts God has given us is a free ticket for the Journey of Prayer. It is the “trip of a lifetime” because God travels with us, leads us to His heart and speaks into ours. It is a stunning reality that God wants to talk to me and He is interested in what I have to say. The journey of prayer is an adventure that God and I can share together.
He loves intimate times where it is just the four of us (Father, Lord Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit and me) but also welcomes the times when I bring my friends and we all take turns listening, asking questions, singing together, thanking Him for who He is and what He has done, asking Him for help for that which we cannot manage, asking Him to teach us what the journey looks like from His view.
It is never too early or too late to start this journey. I have often said that if I could have only two friends one would be a child and the other someone who knows she is dying. I think this is because they are the ones for whom the journey of prayer is both essential and natural. They are powerful teachers.
We learn to pray by praying. We learn to pray by praying with each other. We have a free ticket for the Journey of Prayer. Let’s enjoy this experience together and tell each other often what we are learning from our adventure.
