Gathering for Prayer

She's sniffling and I can't tell whether it's from the coldness in the air or the unseen tears streaming down her face.


She lets out a cry of anguish. It's the tears.


She continues praying and settles down.


She came in quietly and quite unexpectedly. She keeps her coat on because the chill. She is silent and yet I know her heart is full speaking to her Father.


She prays.


She listens and is convicted by the words she hears. She is choking and can't seem to get the words out fast enough. She confesses her sin and intercedes.


She too prays.


She sits silently almost unnoticed but not by her Father who set up the divine appointment for her to be there when no one else, including herself, had planned it. She is quiet and wants to remain unnoticed but not by her Father who she came to see.


She prays.


We pray because that's what we do when we gather together.


We pray and believe Gods Word for our lives, for the lives of our families, for the Church.


We talk, we cry, we laugh. We pray.
