In dire occasions of need, sometimes, the prayer you need to pray is to make a decision that would prove your loyalty to what is right, true and just as well as to who is right, true and just. In those moments, when said-decision is made, you are not just building your human-will to stand as a wall or protection against vice(s): you are taking a stand, you are becoming defined, you are letting God know that you would stay true to His Will and plan for your life. This prayer – decision unto obedience – will be answered and not just heard.
How is PRAY-ER?
Prayer is singular. It’s single and not ready to mingle with the other phonemes of social standard. Prayer: with eyes shut to the world or eyes open to God’s Word. Pray: in the lowest of your humanity, when there is weakness, when all you have is nothing: You.
How to pray? How to catch a prey or how to be a prey(all inclusive)?
Pray with sealed lips; those bearing the seal of ‘surrenderness’ and obedience. The goal of Prayer is to have no goal but be in the gaol of His presence. Prayer is the warden in God’s word, the platter filled of Heaven’s banter; with extra-toppings of God’s glory. Prayer is how you speak when the universe is listening and when knees are bent, straightened and heads bowed or bowed with arrows of gladness. Prayer, how far? Farther than a feather can go; quite light even though it carries burdens. Prayer is the cross; sacrificial and obedient, unified with gore and gloss, later. Prayer is how you die while living; cup: taking the items of a bucket list you neither want but can’t refuse – Gethsemene. Prayer is a perfect will when the soul submits. Prayer is finite in infinite ways.
Where should Preyer be?
Preyer should never be: Not in a location or a vocation. But prayer should be where the air is, alone. Prayer shouldn’t be pop-culture, an artifact of religion or the map for the criteria of godliness. The truth is, prayer… is godliness. Prayer is the motion from an unanswered mandate to an onanswered one. Prayer is the boundary between the good deeds and the good dues; where we Pray must have God, call God, be for God, be God’s. Prayer must be in the heart first, not as a test of the immortal’s faithfulness but a revelation of holiness. Prayer is where intentions are; not the actions yet…prayer locates the Prayer (supplicant) for not all know how to pray; no one knows how to pray, we are taught how to pray at the moment when we pray. The Prayer (supplicant) should be unaware of the environment. Where we pray, there is no prey. Prayer doesn’t stay where the corrupt lie comfortably. So if there should be prayer, there should be silence; silence to our desires, our needs and our images. Prayer should be where the answerer wishes, at His Mercy, in His Will and more than unusual, in our hearts which we should thread into His – God’s.
