Day 1233 – Praying With Open Hands

I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while. Months, probably. And it’s on the topic of prayer.

I thought this would be a post on how we’ve been praying specific prayers. But as I was writing, I realized it’s more about praying with open hands.

As you might expect, one of my consistent prayers is for more business….but over the last year, it’s changed. I will ask for business, but I will add, if it’s Your Will. I pray for financial security, if it’s His Will. I ask for growth, in whatever means it takes.

The theme that continues to run through my prayers really comes down to giving my requests to my Lord and leaving them there.

It’s holding my business up to Him, but with open hands. It’s understanding that at ANY moment, it can all be taken away.

And can I tell you, it is so freeing. It is so peaceful. Knowing that He knows EVERYTHING, so I don’t need to worry or question the WHY.

I am in a situation now that I never expected I would be in a year ago. And yet, I’m the most joyful and peaceful I’ve ever been. I’m so thankful for how God has changed me in that way.

So, open your hands, hold loosely to what you ask for. His hands are safer.

And since I can’t really share a picture of “prayer” I will share a picture of clouds. I always think of prayer when there are pretty clouds. 🙂
