One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. Psalm 27:4

One of our main emphases during the Lenten season is that of prayer. The word "prayer" means different things to different people and different things at different times. Usually, we think of prayer as talking to God. One of our goals of prayer, perhaps the deepest desire in praying should be to simply be in the presence of the Almighty. Here, we are not talking to God, but rather, silently waiting, eagerly beholding, listening with expectation and just being consciously aware of being in His presence. It is through this type of prayer that God molds us and shapes us. It is in this place our roots grow deep and our fruit develops in great abundance.

Lord, give us the sincere desire to spend time in your presence, not asking for anything, but simply basking in your everything. Amen.
