Pray Bravely

Today’s Reflection

Be Brave in Prayer

for God already knows
what it holds within –
your dreams, your sorrows,
your yesterdays, your tomorrows.
Why then be afraid
of the asking?
It is not what you pray
but that you do pray
that touches God.
Be brave in prayer.
Freely give to God,
and God will give in return.
