When we cannot pray…

“When we cannot pray, we let God be our prayer. Nor should we be frightened by the hardness of our heart: prayer will soften it. We give even our lack of prayer to God.”

From my morning readings in “Prayer – Finding the Heart’s True Home“, by Richard J. Foster.

I tend to beat myself up for not remembering to pray, and the shame of that makes it even harder to return to my developing prayer relationship with God.  Help me to simply offer my lack of prayer to God as soon as I notice it!
