'No' and 'know': ideas on prayer
I was hiking up my first 14,000-foot peak. I was new on the summer camp staff and didn’t know too many of my fellow counselors with whom I was hiking—but I was determined to go the distance on this first staff orientation trip. However, after a few hours, I started feeling the newness of my new boots. In another couple of hours, it just hurt to walk.
I have always prayed whenever I’ve been confronted by discord—whether physical, financial, or related to relationships. So this was the way I planned to deal with this situation: pray.
I usually start my prayers by thinking about the allness of God’s love. It then becomes easy to detect whatever thoughts are ungodlike—in other words, any thoughts that would limit our health and wholeness, which are our natural states since we’re made in God’s image.
