Prayer is a compass.
May 26, 2003
Human life provides opportunities for you to move forward. That movement is marked by the choices you make. They are the indicators that determine the specific directions that you take. With prayer, your lives continue on the path that is most beneficial. With prayer, you are as you should be, and you are where you should be. Without prayer, you are heading off into the sea without a compass, and it is not long before you have little sense of where you are, and where you should be headed. Your compass in life is prayer.
Let your lives be governed, therefore, by prayer just as the captain makes decisions about the ship riding the seas based on information of a compass, of knowing where one is and where one is to go. Open the lid of the compass and allow your lives to be governed, shaped, and directed daily through the openness of prayer.
