Prayer is Simple

One of my favorite writings on prayer is from Wendy Beckett. She speaks of the essential act of prayer: "it is to stand unprotected before God. What will God do? He will take possession of us. That He should do this is the whole purpose of life."

Prayer is concerned not with me but with God.

If we want to pray, if we want God to take possession of us, then we are praying!

I find that the "joyful surrender" that I am trying to live this year is a great help to that "standing unprotected before God". It is letting God be God and do with us what He wants.
