Our very own Annie is in Capernwray Hall in England, studying God and travelling in Europe. While she’s there, she has also taken some time to update her blog. In it she discusses her relationship to God as a personal one and it’s a good lesson for us all to remember.
When I was growing up, we always started our prayers with: “Heavenly Father… (insert prayer here)…In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.” For the longest time, those words didn’t have any meaning to me; it was just a routine I grew up with. I didn’t know God well, so I addressed Him just like everyone else did. This one year at camp I remember one of my cabin leaders prayed out loud, simply telling God about her day saying, “Hey God, here’s what’s happening in my life…” I realized that you don’t have to sound fancy or holy when you talk to Him, you can be real, honest, and down to earth.
