Hauerwas on Prayer
[Prayer] has “taught me God is God and I’m not.”
Today I spent a good part of my morning reading Psalm 5, and having it read to me in different versions of the Bible. There was something comforting to know that God has my back. Stanley Hauerwas gives us a cute little clip about prayer that is also comforting - reminding me that God is on God’s time, not my time. Sometimes sitting in the quiet or rereading a passage over and over again is a good way to go to hear God speak. I’ve also been watching how God uses strangers to communicate to me. But that’s for a different day.
