“If you can’t pray a real prayer, pray hypocritically, full of doubt and dry-mouthed. God accepts counterfeit money as though it were real.” Rumi (1207-1273)
This quote is a real comfort to me because of the times that I try to pray, meditate, find silence and solitude, contemplate or worship… or whatever… and I feel is it dry, fake and pathetic.
I have learned to just try and do it anyway believing the Father’s love and grace has got me covered… regardless of my opinion or performance. Then again, who decided what is the right way to do all this stuff? What is counterfeit? It’s another real comfort to me to let the Lord sort it out.
“Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Jesus
