We pray from down here, not up there. We are so caught up with ourselves that we pray from our point of view and not from God's point of view. God knows all things, understands our wants and needs, sees all things from an eternal perspective, not from a time perspective. He is the source of all things. Prayer, then is resting in Him and being with Him as He dwells in us and we in Him. Prayer is a quiet communion where grace flows like the rain upon us; the grace of joy, love, forgiveness and peace. All we need to do is open ourselves to Him and that becomes our prayer of adoration, praise and thanksgiving. We join Him and He sweeps us up in His grace.
"Be still, and know that I am God;" Psalm 46. This is all we need to know about prayer. In our stillness we listen, we communicate in silence and knowing that we are one in His Spirit, and His Spirit is one in us. We are not the Spirit, but partake of the Spirit. There is no need to form words as we are transformed through His Spirit. Whatever our needs, they are met; whatever our longings they are met; whatever our gratitude and requests for forgiveness, they are met. Silence with Him is our prayer.
Prayer is being with the Light of God. Being in His presence. We don't have to say anything because He knows what is in our hearts and minds. We just need to rest in Him and Him in us. Our prayer is a reflection of Him as He shines through us. Our prayer is an encounter with the Spirit where no words are necessary. No need to memorize prayers, words, and rituals just be with the Spirit of the Lord and dwell with Him and listen. Carry on a conversation rather than rolling off words from memory. Prayer is being with Him and Him in us without words. That way we don't have to worry about 'what should I say?' "Am I saying it right?' If we are with Him in Spirit and He is in us then our conversation with Him is right. It's prayer.
