#Thoughts&Prayers

As someone who constantly benefits from prayer, I highly recommend it in all situations. Tragedies are bigger than we are, and I find it incredibly comforting to have God as a companion to get through them.

Forgiveness

No, I don’t forgive you.

Every time I think I have a handle on what it means to forgive, I have trouble fully translating the philosophical into the practical. I think I finally know why.

Prayer of gratitude

If the only prayer you ever say is …

When “thank you” is a prayer, it is a recognition that God exists and that He has done something for me. It is a way of receiving what He has done for me.
