Stephen Cottrell looks at ‘Rising from Sleep in the Morning’.
He speaks first of prayer (p29). I see Jesus reaching out and up. Reaching out to God in prayer.
That is how we reach out. To pray is to spend time with God. To yearn to be nearer to him, in his presence. But praying, reaching out, is not all about talking to God. It is about spending time, listening, just resting in his presence.
To do so is reaching out to God.
Lord, I reach out to you. To be with you, to hear you, to know you better.
I’m not necessarily going to blog every day on it, just when something leaps out at me – and they will be thoughts rather than full blog posts.
