The most valuable experience in the entire universe is to communicate with the Creator of the universe. Thousands of books, millions of messages, and countless other inspirational directives have pointed us in the direction of how to communicate with God. The amazing thing is ~ though it is so valuable, not many exercise this most precious activity enough to experience it’s true value.
Remember, prayer is all about the personal relationship between the two that are communicating. Honesty and vulnerability are the key foundational elements in your daily communication with God. If there is any sense of performance, or pretense of trying to impress ~ it has the opposite effect on your relationship and communication with God. It’s simple. He already knows every detail about you, so if you try to impress Him it does just the opposite.
So though you may want to impress your friends, family, or even those who really know you ~ being vulnerable with God is definitely impressive to Him. This sense of honesty and humility is a key element in true communication with God, and brings you into that place of “beautiful prayer”.
Paul put it this way, “For my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” Oh, such a beautiful place to be in every day, every moment, and every second ~ in that place of beautiful prayer!
