Praying Big Prayers

I used to think I prayed big prayers~ …wild prayers …outlandish prayers …audacious prayers …even scary prayers But then I realized~ …the biggest …wildest …most outlandish and audacious …and definitely the scariest prayer I ever prayed is simply this: Teach me to love The way You love It will take a lifetime It will cost … More Praying Big Prayers
