The word she has chosen for this Five Minute Friday is "Grateful."
There are times when prayer is like a gentle conversation between a child and his loving Father. Other times it is rather routine - sounding to my own ears like a laundry list of wants and wishes. There are those seasons when it seems the cry of my heart never rises beyond the ceiling of my bedroom - the heavens like brass bouncing my words right back into my heart.
We have had a season of prayer that doesn't come often into our lives - a time of desperation, when prayer was a constant conversation with the only One who could help; a time when words simply would not come and the Spirit prayed for us.
Then...the longed for answer came. It came like a miracle - longed for but somehow unexpected because it was so big. And we are more grateful than words can possibly express. It is a gratitude that fills the heart and spills over in tears that course down cheeks.
