Bridges remind me of how I long to embrace the difficulties of crossing a gap–whether mental, emotional, or spiritual to connect to myself, to others, or to God. How grateful I feel that I can use the tool of prayer in any of its multitudinous forms to bridge to God.
My prayer response:
From where I am to where you are God, sometimes feels like so far. I am not sure how to find my way to You. In reality, You are closer than my next breath. You are closer than the thought I am thinking as I write this. We are already together. Help me to perceive this more clearly, more strongly, more surely, I pray.
- Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there. If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast. Psalms 139:7-10
- Jesus was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray...” Luke 11:1
Invitation to prayer:
What prayers are emerging in your heart, mind, and body?
Pray them now.
