"The source of my prayer is Christ. The same one who gave me these words when I first prayed for a child: “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God” (Psalm 46:4).  Back then, I read those words and knew that my prayer had been answered. 
Now I know that “answered” is not really the best word-picture for what sometimes happens when we pray.  Instead, it is less like being spoken to and more like being swept away by water that was always already pushing in the direction we longed to go.
We don’t need to fight to get God’s attention. We do need to remember that our Savior with the voice like water has never stopped praying over us." -Christie Purifoy 
Take a minute this weekend to read Christie's full post.

  1. Hey, Kelli, thanks for this! I've only just found it at the bottom of my reader. I got a litttle behind on blog reading while we were away. :)
