ULTIMATE REALITY CHECK
Prayer is my ultimate reality check.
I can fool some of the people some of the time, I can fool myself some of the time, but I cannot fool God.
Prayer is the place I go to find out how I am doing. If I am getting into trouble, I can probably get straightened out with prayer.
Sometimes I bring unnecessary problems on myself.
Many mistakes seem like a good idea at the time. The way that seems right gets me into difficulty over and over again. I need a periodic reality check to avoid the way that seems right, but leads to disaster.
Prayer is that reality check. It clarifies my vision. It’s not asking for a miracle or trying to make my problems disappear. I pray to discover how things really are so I don’t fool myself and follow the way that seems right, but ends in tragedy.
If I pull on a long rope that connects a boat to shore, I don’t pull the shore to the boat. Instead, I pull the boat to the shore. That is the way it is with prayer.
When I pull on the rope that connects me to God, I don’t pull God to my way of doing things. I pull myself to his way of doing things.
Prayer is the way I align myself with God’s program for my life. Prayer doesn’t change God. Prayer changes me.
