July 07 • I Prayed

Day 363 Yesterday, I found myself at a family meal where it would have been routine to defer the prayer of thanksgiving to my minister father. Instead, I prayed with an ease that I haven't experienced in a 'public' or out-loud prayer in a very long time. I didn't even realize how comfortable it had been until the amen. I did not take any particular significance from this, except the unexpected pleasure and absence of awkwardness. There is a line in today's entry from the meditation book I regularly read: "Once we open ourselves to our Higher Power, we can get comfortable with our own way of praying."* When I read this, I immediately remembered that moment from an otherwise routine moment in life and wondered whether it might have been a milestone. –JR *Anonymous.
