The only way to reach into Heaven is to kneel and put my face to the ground.
How that clears my mind and opens my soul.
I feel you rush into me and my heart becomes full.
Lost in the blissfulness, I can hear only your voice and it takes me into another state where I disappear from myself and join into you.
Fully enveloped by your Holy Spirit, all time and activity ceases, for how long I do not know.
Suddenly I awaken, still crouched in a position of supplication and I can’t remember my temporary escape from my body.
Only the moments before can I recall.
What is that time like with you, Lord?
Am I there, standing beside you, in Heaven? Do you walk me through your plans for me? Why can’t I remember?
It’s no matter.
Prayer time is my commune with you, and it helps me find my feet again.
I stand up and walk away from my worship space a shining knight, dressed in your armor, rested and ready for war.
