Prayer and the Word

Beeda Speis posts to her blog every day, but some days, due to time constraints or writer’s block, all she can share is a prayer and the word. Somedays, it may just be a Bible verse or passage.

Pray Out Loud

I kind of feel like prayer is my “thing,” you know? It’s what I’m called to do, something I’m passionate about, yet praying out loud, in front of people makes me incredibly anxious. I trip over my words, or worse, can’t find my words. It seems messy. I listen to others pray out loud and
