Whenever You Pray

“Whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret.”  Matthew 6:6

 Morning Surprise
Morning Surprise

****
The invitation is 

to meet God in silence,
deep in my own heart;
He patiently waits for me
to open the door to his word
and to sit quietly 
letting it soak into my being,
there are many doors to close on my way to this 
sacred place where God waits for me.
Today, I close the door on guilt and worry.
Jesus , I desire the grace to
 open the door to the compassion that resides in my heart ,
to the place where you abide.
