Breath

"To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing." Martin Luther

I don't think we quite understand the vitality to the sacred privilege of prayer, it not only changes the world but it also keeps us spiritually alive, brings us closer to Him and it has the power to not change His mind to grant us our requests but our minds and hearts to be turned towards His perfect and holy will for our life and those around us. I fear that we have not grasped the reality of this: that the maker of the universe, the almighty, perfect, holy and triune God, the one who breathed life into all of existence and the one who has saved our souls from His wrath by sending His only begotton son to be crucified on a cross while we were still sinners has given us the gift, the holy and sacred privilege to approach Him in prayer. Profoundly amazing... breath.
