“At a time when it’s easy to lose ourselves in the rush and clamor of our own lives, or get caught up in the noise and rancor that too often passes as politics today, these moments of prayer slow us down. They humble us. They remind us that no matter how much responsibility we have, how fancy our titles, how much power we think we hold, we are imperfect vessels. We can all benefit from turning to our Creator, listening to Him. Avoiding phony religiosity, listening to Him.” –President Obama at last week’s National Prayer Breakfast
p.s. Do you pray with your hands clasped, open, or not at all? I like to pray with my hands open. It makes me feel like I’m able to receive whatever God’s answer is to my prayers.
