Prayer is a funny thing. There are thousands of books written on the subject, and yet I feel a little silly going to a class teaching me to do something that I've done for most of my life.
And yet I am...tomorrow. I've come to the realization that I have the opportunity to meet with/talk with/live in the presence of the God of the Universe...and maybe I should stop taking that for granted. It's odd how cavalier I've become about it.
If I were to tell you that I was talking with President Obama about the NFL, you'd stop me and say, "what? You were talking with who?" It'd be a big deal. What if God was a bigger deal than politics, celebrity or sports? Imagine a conversation with God affecting more of one's life than a chance encounter with Tom Sellek in an elevator.
The reality is talking with Tom about the great mustache controversy of 1999 would be a big deal. Talking with the Fella that created everything might be as well. So what do you think you'd talk about or even think about more?
I honestly haven't taken prayer that seriously. I just sort of do it. Tomorrow is more about my decision to put some thought, energy and time into my conversations with God.
It's about time...
