Bite-sized Inspiritment Day 16: Pray

Have you ever explored a topic or been on a journey with something and the more you learn and experience, the more you realise it is deeper and more complex than you know while still being completely simple? Prayer has been like that in my life. It seems to have infinite facets and nuances and yet is still incredibly simple.
I am far from having all of the answers to all of the questions around prayer. What I do know is that it is essential to my closeness with God, to recalibrating my focus and to my peace of mind. I know that it is more about the attitude I approach it with than the words I choose to use. I know that words are not even necessary at times. It is my time to connect with God and quiet the noise of the world.
I needed this reminder to make space for prayer in my days, to allow quiet during activities so that I can use that time for prayer. Maybe you do too.
