The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
    to all who call upon Him in truth. (Psalm 145:18)


Eyes opening in the morning.

A prayer of praise.

Walking at dusk, looking up at the heavens.

A prayer of thanks.

Driving to work, an ambulance siren heard from behind.

A prayer for healing.

A friend’s text message request for support with depression.

A prayer for God’s hope.

The loss of a family member you could not see for closure.

 A prayer for faith.


Is there a time, an occurrence when prayer

could not be part of the experience?



Our breath to God,

Inhaling His Word-

Exhaling our thoughts,

Communicating with Him

In praise, in gratitude-

Seeking His comfort

In hope, in faith-

As He leans toward us,

Hearing and listening,

Ever present in love,

Answering in His way-

His Breath to us.



(1 Thessalonians 5:17)
