So it’s now 10:42 pm and this would be the first time I’ve actually been able to sit down and relax. And it feels amazing.

Lately I’ve been dealing with lots of passwords. To apply to grad schools, you need passwords. To buy sheetmusic via a random composer, I needed a password! I think I’ve made up more, different passwords in the past 2 days than I have in my whole life. My “go-to” password didn’t meet the specific requirements on different websites. Ergo, I have a piece of paper with my different sign-in names and passwords in my wallet. Sad. I know.

I’m at a point where I’m exhausted and yet so pumped to accomplish/achieve so many things. I think for me to be in such a mode I needed a password. Password = prayer. Along with internet passwords, spirtual passwords have kept me tapped into where I needed to be to get me where I’m going.

I love that my SP (spiritual passwords = prayers) don’t need to be the same to gain access to God. How blessed are we to be uniquely, fearfully, and wonderfully made and can come to the Father in an array of ways.

I don’t know if you (readers) know this but I love quotes. So here are a few that have some good “meat” to feed you.

Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian.
-Andrew Murray

He who has learned to pray has learned the greatest secret of a holy and happy life.
-William Law

The more praying there is in the world, the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil everywhere. Prayer, in one phase of its operation, is a disinfectant and a preventive. It purifies the air; it destroys the contagion of evil. Prayer is no fitful, short-lived thing. It is no voice crying unheard and unheeded in the silence. It is a voice which goes into God’s ear, and it lives as long as God’s ear is open to holy pleas, as long as God’s heart is alive to holy things. God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed to death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God’s heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; they outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world. That man is the most immortal who has done the most and the best praying. They are God heroes, God’s saints, God’s servants, God’s vicegerents. A man can pray better because of the prayers of the past; a man can live holier because of the prayers of the past; the man of many and acceptable prayers has done the truest and greatest service to the incoming generation. The prayers of God’s saints strengthen the unborn generation against the desolating waves of sin and evil.

-Edward McKendree (E. M.) Bounds

One Response to “Passwords.”

    I love that you know prayer is the key to a total, healthy, spiritual life. It can move mountains, make crooked places straight, give us patience, help us to grow spiritually and bring the high places down low, heal a sin sick soul, open blinded eyes (either spiritually blind or physically blind. Prayer will also lead you down a road that makes you wiser and smarter.
    Love Mom
