There is nothing we do or say that makes God closer to us or look on us with more favor. God’s presence is constant. God’s love is constant. What we get to do is simply be more aware of God’s all-the-time presence. Being aware happens best when we step out of the traffic and direct our attention back towards God. Light a candle and give yourself some time and space to be aware of God.
These are 16 prayer practices developed by Lyle Griner at Peer Ministry. Find one that fits, combine several, or modify one to find your personal rhythm to continue a growing faith and life aware of God’s grace, love, peace and hope.
