Anchored in Prayer

The power of prayer is the power that comes to us when we realize
that God can be our point of reference in the midst of all the
confusions of our daily lives, [offering] the steadfastness of God rather than
the incomplete, fragile inconstancies of ourselves. It's the power
that comes when we're able to be centered, anchored in a belief and
rooted in a Truth which is stronger and deeper than the day-to-day
truths we struggle with. I think this may have been what the apostle
Paul had experienced when he wrote to the people of Ephesus about
God's desire for us "that we may no longer be children, tossed to
and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the cunning
of people, by their craftiness in deceitful wiles." (Ephesians 4:14)
In prayer our hearts and minds can be focused on the eternal truths
of God and not the changing, fickle truths of human knowledge and
human nature.
