There are moments when our prayer has run out, where the living water has dried up, when we are overwhelmed, full of despair, angry, ashamed, or afraid…and we feel we cannot pray. And that is our prayer. That prayer may be a mess, as much of a mess as a young child who is crying, screaming, hungry, or lost. But we are children of God, and God loves children.
