Pray from where you're at
The other night I was reading Peggy Noonan's biography of Ronald Reagan, When Character Was King." She recalled an interview with his daughter Patti who talked about prayer. She said something that I liked a lot. When she prays, she doesn't think that she first has to get herself all cleaned up, so to speak, but can talk to God from whatever spot she's in, no matter how messy. I really liked that because sometimes I can think I have to get myself "all together" before I pray. But God just wants to hear from us, whether it's just after an argument with someone, or in the midst of changing dirty diapers or whatever.
