We can forget that prayer is not about doing something, but rather about being with Someone. Prayer is an encounter. Mother Teresa would tell her novices that when they entered the chapel, they should say to Jesus: “Here I am, Lord. Love me.” Prayer is not rattling off words, nor a simple psychological activity, nor punching the clock, nor magic, nor ritual words and postures. It is not a monologue where we speak at God, but a dialogue where we converse with Him who is closer to us than we are to ourselves. Prayer is about falling head-over-heels in love with the God who is head-over-heels in love with us.

I miss kissing you like this. 24 more days. 
Literally, I don’t even have words for this beauty and how grateful I am for this moment.
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
- Philippians 4:5, NIV

Riptide - Vance Joy
Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man, I love you.

I rarely listen to the radio, but I was listening yesterday and this song came on that I had never heard before and suddenly, I loved that radio station for introducing me to such a great song. On repeat today.

So I’ll send you my words
from the corners of my room
and though I write them by the light of day

please read them by the light of the moon
