Oil for friction

“Prayer is what greases the friction between us,

lubricating around the grit & flecks of irritability

that work themselves into the system,

preventing the normal wear & tear of life

from causing us to grate against or rub on one another.

Instead we maintain our fluid motions, our synchronized interconnections.

Prayer helps us stay focused on bigger things,

on much more eternal things than the petty stuff

that threatens to puff itself up beyond actual size

and become some huge deal it doesn’t deserve to be.

In prayer we experience the kind of hard-fought peace

that unites us into an army of soldiers for Christ.”

Pricilla Shirer
