A friend of mine shared this equation:
PRAYER + SURRENDER = PEACE
This isn’t a raise the white flag, I give up, just forget it kind of surrender…
This is a wrestling with God, I’m afraid, I just don’t know, I’m angry, I don’t want to, difficult prayer of surrender when my will has become disconnected with His will and plan.
Uncomfortable prayer, challenging prayer, die to oneself prayer, no I don’t know the best way prayer of surrender that leads to peace.
That peace beyond human understanding…
The fitting of my heart in His…
My hand once again clasped in the hand of my Father.
Yes, PRAYER + SURRENDER = PEACE.
“This is how you are to pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.” Matthew 6:9-10
