Why our prayers should overflow

Why our prayers should overflow

Have you ever watched a flooded, fast flowing river after a storm? It can be a spectacular sight. In the book Wind in the Willows, I love Mole’s description of a lively river: “this sleek, sinuous, full bodied animal, chasing and chuckling, gripping things with a gurgle and leaving them with a laugh, to fling itself fresh playmates … Continue reading

I used to approach prayer like putting on my Sunday best. When I was a child, (I’m the cutie in the middle) I remember having to put on a dress or a skirt to attend church. No pants or trousers were acceptable for a girl. So, I thought I had to “dress up” my prayers … Continue reading
