Prayer Lab

One of the things I really want to focus on during these last three or four weeks until Easter is prayer. My prayer life over the last couple of months has been difficult. I’ve been aware of God’s presence with me at times; what I mean is, I’ve been aware that God is here, and so I guess I have rested in his presence, just sat with Him. Which has been fine.

Over the next few weeks I’d like to be a little more disciplined in my regular prayer times, the Offices. These times give me a gentle structure to my days, help me to step back and offer my ministry back to God. I find it too easy to be distracted by my agenda and that of those around me. I am being reminded often that this whole project is God’s, and no-one elses.
