Too often prayer is associated with times of difficulty and as a response to specific need. There are other times to pray than when we are I need, and additional forms of prayer than those which are petitions for help. Personal devotional prayer, similar to a poem, is a form of expressing ones love and appreciation for all-that-is. It neither asks for anything, nor does it complain and cry out for help. It is a practice of describing all that is holy, good and beautiful. Performed daily on a regular schedule, it is a most satisfying practice and serves as a infusion of energy and appreciation. William Law wrote “He who has learned to pray has learned the greatest secret of a holy and happy life.” Whatever you might have been praying for, consider today writing a poem about the Presence, or simply expressing what you love about the state of being alive, and call that your prayer for today.
