Prayer is wordless wonder

beach wavesWalking along the beach yesterday late in the afternoon I was trying to pray with words and nothing was coming out.

That’s when I experienced this:  Prayer is wordless wonder.

Not always.  And not finally either.  Prayer often involves words–hearing God’s Word, echoing His word, offering up our own words.  That’s a lot of what this site is about afterall.

Yet there are still times when words fail us, butGod doesn’t.  His presence is still with us, and we still want to pray and worship Him, but the words aren’t there.

It’s okay to just open our eyes and ears and our spirits in wordless wonder before God.

“I opened my mouth and panted in longing, for I long for Your commands.” Psalm 119:131
