Preparation for healing

The dusk of a midwestern winter day is just right for a warm fire, and I was about to put on my boots and jacket to go out to chop some firewood. But right before I went outside, I had a clear sense that I needed to stop and devote a few moments to prayer.

People pray in many different ways. I approach prayer as communing with God, mentally letting go of the push of human will and listening for divine direction. The Bible describes man as made in God's image and likeness, and prayer is the active affirmation of the protection, power, and provision we rightly have because our true nature is spiritual. Through such prayer, our thought is aligned more closely with God, with Truth.
