Still here....

I know, I've been quieter lately. I'm still trying to focus on prayer..."without ceasing" as Paul writes in the scripture. The idea intrigues me & I am thinking it must be possible to be in an attitude of prayer at all times because if Paul wrote it in the Bible, then it must be true! I think one aspect of this may be to remain acutely aware of God's presence, especially in our thought life, at all times, if possible. And to dialogue with Him & maybe more importantly, to listen to Him.    Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia


  1. I've thought the same things about prayer, Cynthia. I still find continuous prayer eludes me.

    I read a book called Practicing the Presence of Jesus and wrote a review on my blog. It suggested focusing on God's continuous presence.

    Thanks again for encouraging me.

    1. Thanks Laura! I did pop over to read your linked post. It took me to a memory quite a few years ago where I "imagined" Jesus beside me as I walked the aisle of a Catholic church to participate in communion. I was a bit scared to take communion because, although raised Catholic, I prefer other churches. But inwardly, I was thinking Jesus is Lord of communion & He should be the only One I should be focused on, but being nervous, I pretended He was walking along side of me! It's a sweet memory! Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia P.S. I recognize your blog quite well as I love to explore link ups. I've visited you often.j
