Each night, as I put my daughter to sleep there is a moment when she relaxes herself into my arms. She has given up all resistance and is ready to simply trust and be held.
It is this attitude that we should seek in our prayer–a complete rest in the arms of God. Today, spend 20 minutes in silence, imagining that you are a child completely relaxed into the arms of God. Let go of all of your struggles and simply rest there.
