too busy to pray....

“Prayer is an unnatural activity.  From birth, we learn the rules of self-reliance as we strain and struggle toward independence, and frankly, prayer flies in the face of all that…Although prayer is alien to our proud human nature, somehow, at some point along life’s journey, most of us fall to our knees, bow our heads, fix our attention on God and just plain pray.  We may look both ways to be sure no one is watching, our knees may creak at the foreignness of the activity; but still we pray.  It’s as if something within us is hard-wired with the knowledge that in doing so we weave stronger threads of intimacy with the One who alone can provide peace to endure and power to overcome whatever challenges we face.”  From Bill Hybels..."Too Busy Not to Pray” thanks Melissa, you encouraged me!
