I have been a Christian for over twenty years. I grew up in the church. God has always been entwined into my life. I have always known about prayer. I have prayed too many times for me to count. I have prayed with confidence like it talks about in Hebrews. When we approach the thrown of God with confidence. I have prayed for many things. I have prayed responding to who God is. I have worshiped through prayer. I have confessed the ways I fall short of my Father’s desires. I have prayed.
Why then is prayer still such a mystery. I am discovering new rhythms to prayer. These rhythms are not in 4/4 time. These are not the rhythms I am used to. It feels awkward. It feels unnatural. My arms and feet have to move with effort to play with these new rhythms.
The rhythm is foreign but I love the song I am hearing.
