Praying


"Praying with eyes wide open is the only way to pray without ceasing."
~ from One Thousand Gifts, by Anne Voskamp

"Then the king said to me, 'What do you request?' 
So I prayed to the God of heaven. 
And I said to the king, 
'If it pleases the king, and if your servant has found favor in your sight, 
I ask that you send me to Judah, to the city of my father's tombs, 
that I may rebuild it.'"
~Nehemiah 2:4,5

We pray to the God of heaven, and we speak to the king.
