Even with the words of Christ, we must be reminded that prayer is always more than words. Philip Yancey points to the fact that the important thing is not what I say, but what I see. “Prayer has become for me much more than a shopping list of requests to present to God. It has become a realignment of everything. . .In prayer I shift the view away from my own selfishness. . .I gaze at the stars and recall what role (small) I play in a universe beyond my comprehension. Prayer is the act of seeing reality from God’s point of view.” (Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference?) Today as you pray, will you focus on the Lord and learn a new perspective on yourself and your needs? Like Job, will you embrace a big God and your own smallness? Look up, dear friend! Let what you see shape what you say!
