I read this post today:
And it’s buzzing around in my mind.
If prayer gives one security, does it also give one comfort?
I can’t say that it gives me either. It’s something that’s tacked on to the beginning of the day (sometimes). And I try and say a quick, ‘Thank you!’ if something good happens. But I don’t turn to prayer (and therefore don’t turn to God) when in need of security or comfort. And I would say here that I think security is a form of comfort.
So, given my problems with food, is prayer something I can train myself to use instead of chocolate? Or cigarettes.
You know, I’d really like to have the kind of relationship with God that I see people writing about. I’m not very sure how to get there but I plan to try.
