So donít let anyone or anything put you down! No one can take away your value as a person, no failure can over shadow the glory that you have within; the glory that HE Himself placed within you. No difficulty can stand so high or tragedy run so deep as to separate you from your call to walk with the God of All, to be a friend of the only true God, the only God that truly is. No matter what may happen, you are His child and no one, or nothing can take that away! The most inherent and sublime dignity of having within you Godís image is yours and can not be compromised. Even in the most ďinsignificantĒ person, (though to God all human beings are infinitely precious and significant), He is present and therefore all are worthy of the highest respect and honor!
That is all fine and good but how do we make contact? Before the activity of prayer, all other human endeavor pales to insignificance. There is no other act that has greater consequence, more meaning, greater power and effect than communicating with the Living God.
All creation communicates with Him, and renders up prayer and worship in its own way according to the character of each creature, yet prayer in the human sense is uniquely human and special. In the act of praying the human person speaks to the Personal God, speaks to his/ her Father.
The human being that is praying is talking as a child speaks to his/ her parent. While praying a human being, a creature of infinite value and worth, comes face to Face with the Terrible and Almighty Creator of the Universe.
Before the activity of prayer, all other human endeavor pales to insignificance. There is no other act that has greater consequence, more meaning, greater power and effect than communicating with the Living God.
So me beloved friend, have courage, just try to reach out to Him. He awaits you with much love. He is reaching for you, looking for you to come home to Him, HE LOVES YOU, and understands you. There is nothing to fear. Simply start to pray, just ask, just make contact with Him. If words donít come easily, just say what is in your heart. If still you are dry, start with the Lordís prayer, or just the simple phrase known throughout history as the Jesus Prayer:
Say the Jesus Prayer as it is called over and over and like a great sweetness not comparable to other earthly sweetness, the Lordís grace will take away all bitterness, turmoil, anxiety and restlessness, and slowly but surely fill you with His joy THE joy like no other. Have courage and just go for it!
