Prayerfulness is fostered by the simple consciousness that God is. That God is near us at all times. That God is closer to us than the breath we breathe. That God is available, a silence in the midst of chaos, a voice in the midst of confusion, a promise at the center of the tumult.
Breath of the Soul, Joan Chittister
He is near; that He is able to rescue and deliver; that He is in all things that I experience because He gives his life, his breath, his everything to me. Thank you most faithful Father for loving your children so thoroughly! You never give up on us. How close are you to us? Closer than our own breath? You inhabit every atom of your creation! That thought I cannot comprehend and that thought reminds me that you, God, and you alone, are worthy of praise, adoration, and worship.
Be assured that I never abandon any of My children, not even temporarily. I will never leave you or forsake you! My Presence watches over you continually. I have engraved you on the palms of My hands.
Jesus Calling, Sarah Young
