So often our prayers sound like a shopping list. The author, Ann, reminds us that Mary prayed, "My soul doth magnify the Lord." Do we remember to magnify the Lord - at anytime in our prayers?
God does not need me magnifying Him, but I need Him. When we give thanks we decrease and make room for Him. He begins to grow within us.
I give thanks and something stirs within me. This is the other side of prayer. Naming moments moves me beyond the shopping list.
... and I move into His presence.
