How I Learnt to Pray like a Warrior
3 years ago, I became an accidental prayer warrior. As a new believer who turned away from God for 20 years, I knew I didn't have the words, in fact, I had no idea what to say. So, I didn't say anything. I turned off all the lights, lit some candles, pressed play on the most sweetly sung worship song I could find and I just sat there and received. Seconds later I knew I was in the presence of my heavenly Father who had been there all along, tears gently streamed down my face as I remembered His love. The love I had rejected for all those years.
I began to sing along gently, and then my song turned into a spoken prayer of thanks. The words weren't perfect, but they flowed out fast. That day began the first real conversation I had ever had with my God, and it has changed me forever. I still don't have the words, but I know I don't need them. His spirit inside me has the playbook, all I need to do is stop, sit, listen, and thank Him.
