Where will I find God today? — in the words of a friend? in a verse of scripture that pops into my mind? in a song that arises in my heart? in the sunlight or in a breeze or in a beautiful scene? in the face of a loved one? Rather than being “one more thing” I have to do today, prayer becomes the gift of relationship with God, a God who seeks us out in order to love us, sustain us, help us, encourage us, challenge us, and support us. God comes to us with gifts.
