Prayer Is a Position (PrayerLife)

Praying at the Western Wall (Wailing Wall), Jerusalem

"Prayer only seems like an act of language. Fundamentally it is a position, a placement of oneself."
- Philip Yancey, Prayer, Kindle Locations 409-411

I think Yancey is right. Communication in the love-relationship of friendship or marriage is not merely a matter of words, but of presence. Prayer as communication is positional presence. It is encounter with the Other. Prayer is a relationship. 

Prayer is meeting. Therefore prayer has a meeting place. 

Position yourself in God's presence today, and pray.
